From Australia's bestselling author.
Nicholas Duncan is a semi-retired shipping magnate who resides in idyllic Beautiful Bay in Indonesia. Grieving the loss of his wife, Anna, he is suffering for the first time from disturbing flashbacks to WWII, the scene of their first meeting. His other wartime lover is the striking Marg Hamilton, a powerful Australian political player still close to Nick.
Encouraged by a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Specialist, Nick sets about writing his life, drawing us into the compelling tale of the life he has lived since his war-hero days, building a shipping empire, and loving the women who inspire him.
A sequel to “Persimmon Tree” This is a great read and a reminder of some of the not so old history that should still make us cringe as Australians! Yes it is Fiction but the history contained within the later part is far from being Fiction. Another eye opener by this great Author.
Fishing For Stars
Beautifully read by Humphrey Bower, as are all the Bryce Courtenay books. I haven't enjoyed this one as much as others as have found the author gets on his soap box a bit too often. Learning as you read is one thing, getting a lecture is not so enjoyable.
