Extraordinary English diplomatic couple,
This review is from: A PATTERN OF ISLANDS. (Hardcover)
This book is about as charming & wonderfull as it gets,reading about far off cultures & people.It gives a facinating insight into the power of 'Magic' not always benign & sometimes breath taking in it's power to summon the forces of nature but always offset by the charm & innocence of the Gilbert islanders.
If you are interested in Humans in a, sadly, bygone age, you will love this book.
