Product description

Synopsis

This is a tale, often humorous, of passion and adventure, challenge and courage, tragedy and triumph involving two service people a British Officer, Dan, and an American pilot, Lisa-Beth, thrown together by their military service in the remote and beautiful Falklands.Upon first impression, Dan does not like her but is captivated by her beauty. Initial encounters between them reveal animosity, yet portray a glimpse of affection. After several meetings, Lisa-Beth and Dan realize they are growing to enjoy one another's company. Thus the sparks of love ignite. Dan is very knowledgeable about the wildlife and history which he tries to pass on. They spend a magical summer in the Falklands visiting some of the remoter islands and also South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. Their reluctant but growing intimacy with the islands and with each other unfolds with a wildness mirrored in the landscape around them, against a backdrop of this unspoilt part of the world. They collect local pebbles as a memoriam of their passionate affair. While their infatuation for each other is obvious to their colleagues, they never speak of their love.Eventually, Lisa-Beth is forced by circumstance to question her future with Dan.

She realizes that she truly loves him and believes he feels the same. Dan also plans on confessing his undying love for her but their plans are interrupted when tragedy occurs.
