I am thrilled to announce that my latest book THE FAR SIDE OF THE SUN is published in the US this week by my wonderful publisher Penguin/Berkley. Huge thanks to them for a superb cover that I’m hoping will have the book jumping off the shelves.
It is set in the Bahamas 1943. Young Dodie Wyatt hoped to escape her turbulent past when she fled to Nassau. But the world is at war and one night the peaceful life she has created for herself in her shack on the beach is shattered when she discovers a man dying in an alleyway. On the other side of the city elegant Ella Sandford is married to a powerful diplomat who is assistant to the Duke of Windsor, Governor of the Bahamas. But Ella has her own secrets – ones that threaten to tear apart her safe and ordered life.
When Ella’s world collides with Dodie’s, they find themselves caught in a spiral of violence and greed that rips through Nassau. But Dodie falls deeply in love with a mysterious American stranger on the island, and together they fight to uncover the truth behind the bloodshed while struggling to keep each other alive in this dangerous new world.
It is a story that looks at love and betrayal. At courage and cowardice. But above all it portrays the forceful bond of friendship that shapes the lives of these two strong women, Dodie and Ella.
I hope you enjoy it!
