A short prologue describes the sinking in 1943 of the American PT-109 motor torpedo boat commanded by the young John F. Kennedy in the Western Solomon Islands. This provides the backdrop to the story that takes place in 1960 when Kennedy and Nixon were battling for the US Presidency.
Boston-born Sister Conchita has been sent to the dilapidated mission station on the island of Marakosi to take charge temporarily and encourage its elderly Irish, French and German sisters to modernise. The violent death of an American tourist leads into a story that involves political and industrial intrigue, inter-clan rivalry and much island hopping and paddling. The complex belief systems of the islanders, the tensions between the locals and the ex-pat communities, the environmental consequences of unregulated logging and the rather shambolic rule of the British at the very twilight of the Empire are all beautifully described.
