Overview

Seeing one barracuda nearby is worrisome, but a group of them swimming menacingly over the reef could be a serious threat. Get out of the water. David Ginsberg did, and found love.
This is an adventure love story whose background alternates between two vastly contrasting worlds, bustling metropolitan New York and a laid back Polynesian island. The barracuda encounter results in two young people who live in societies with lifestyles as far apart as the distance that exists between them, meeting and falling in love.
The story is told by David Ginsberg, a young New York attorney who is trying to find his identity. His uncle, with whom he had been living, dies, leaving David very rich, just as lonely, and with the responsibility to find a way to immortalize his uncle’s name. His travels take him to Vaatu’u, a small island in American Samoa. There he meets, falls in love with, and in a charming Samoan wedding, marries Sarah, a breathtakingly beautiful Samoan woman, his “goddess risen from the sea”. Their love helps them face a series of exciting and dangerous adventures.
While Sarah and David are building a tropical resort to help the islanders find jobs, a devastating tsunami develops. Sarah goes out to sea to warn the fishermen. They all return to safety because of her warning, but she does not. David struggles to survive, devastated by the fear he has lost his wife. But theirs is a love that will not be destroyed. Not by the force of a tsunami, not by the violence of a hurricane, not even by the immense power of the United States government.
Their love scenes are tender and very suggestive, reflecting the warmth and caring of their relationship. They are often playful, always provocative, and describe the passion of that love.
