Product description

Product Description

In early 1900 on the island of Mahe in the Seychelles, women were confined to specific roles and expectations, and custom and traditions prevailed with reverence. But, 16 year old Anna, being passionate, nature-loving and rebellious, wanted more out of life. She had different desires and bigger dreams...

The book tells the emotional and dramatic story of Anna’s younger years. Forbidden love brought joy and meaning to her life, but it was quickly followed by a dreadful smallpox epidemic that brought tragedy to Mahe’s Victoria hospital where Anna worked. Would she survived the ordeal ? Louis agonised and prayed... fate did lend a hand, and after months of separations they were finally reunited. Surely all will now be fine for them ?

Meanwhile in the background, the threatening atmosphere of a dark and closely guarded secret – witchcraft practices – has the islanders of this close-knit Catholic community shivering in fear, but it is the arson, murder and rape rearing its ugly heads that were more frightening.

Suddenly, in a dramatic twist of fate, Anna’s life was turned perilously upside down... Will she be able to overcome that new drama and survived the First World War at the same time ?
