Overview

An explosive sea adventure of intrigue set in the early twentieth century in French Polynesia.
It's 1921 Mexico. Ne'er-do-well sea captain Dugger and his sardonic friend Nello break out of jail and set sail for a new beginning in Tahiti. Aboard are two mysterious passengers: a beautiful escapee from an Irish convent, searching for her twin brother; and a French master spy, hunting the leader of an anticolonial rebellion. But both are searching for more than they admit to-both have enormous secrets of the heart. After a hurricane-battered sea voyage, Gauguin's beguiling Tahitian daughter pilots them through a mountainous jungle of recent infanticide and cannibalism. Aiding the rebels, they provoke the French navy's unleashed revenge in a breathtaking chase through violent black squalls and treacherous reefs. Friendship, love, loyalty, and faith are in a crucible. The exhilarating quest unravels amid the uprising of a doomed culture and the startling convergence of the characters' destinies.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Set in 1921, Máté's rousing sequel to Ghost Sea finds Captain Dugger and his mate, Nello Cerriaci, on an odyssey from Mexico to Polynesia aboard Dugger's ketch with an odd trio of companions. Already aboard is Kate, a woman with no memories beyond the past three weeks. Joining them after a daring rescue of Nello from a Mexican jail are Darina, an Irish woman calling herself a nun, and Robert Guillaume, a self-professed French spy. They set sail for Tahiti, an exhausting, treacherous 3,000-mile, month-long voyage. A change of course lands them at Hiva Oa, a small French Polynesian island, whose few nonnative inhabitants include a drunken Irish priest, a French soldier, a Finn, two Chinese pearl divers, and an Irishman gone native and trying to expel the French. In Máté's capable hands it adds up to romance, danger, betrayal, and tragedy on an island paradise that offers its share of satanic choices. 8-city author tour. (Apr.)
Adventure TI
Gut-wrenching action, characters so beautifully damaged that your heart will ache for them, with a storm saga that could only have been written by a deep water sailor. The best ‘Tahiti’ novel since Mutiny on the Bounty.— Mark Anderson
Woodenboat Magazine
Profoundly moving, deeply disturbing and terrifyingly beautiful. The characters are strong yet mysterious; the action is never-ending and compelling. Ferenc Maté is the leading sailing adventure writer of our time— Carl Cramer

Truby Chiaviello
“Sea of Lost Dreams will be a timeless classic. Mr. Maté has taken the baton handed him by Joseph Conrad and Herman Melville.”
Mark Pillsbury
“One hell of a storm-tossed voyage full of intrigue, romance and surprise. You won't put down Sea of Lost Dreams once you've cracked the cover.”
John Rousmaniere
“A thrilling page-turner. A gripping search in a violent world of revolution in the South Seas of the 1920s.”
