Pan Macmillan Australia
From the remote town of Broome on Australia's rugged north-west coast, comes a sweeping adventure and love story set during the heyday of the pearling industry. A story which echoes down the decades to the present...
Following the death of her mother, Lily Barton embarks on a search for her family roots which leads her to Broome. There, through the pages of an old diary, she learns about the dashing pearling master, Captain Tyndall, and a young woman, Olivia Hennessy, newly arrived from England and wife of the man who becomes Tyndall's business partner.
Olivia and Tyndall's lives become entwined in this town of fortune-hunters seduced by the lure of the pearl. These are wild and passionate times, ruled by the ever-present danger of the seas.
As the dramatic story in the diaries unfolds, stretching from the turn of the century to the bombing of Broome in World War Two, Lily's own search for identity ends with a startling discovery. And she is faced with an agonising decision.
A powerful and unforgettable novel, Tears of the Moon blends the romance and intrigue of Australia's past with a modern woman's dilemma.
