       Additional Information  
      A first novel.

    Fifteen-year-old Julianna, bored and rebellious on her father's yacht, can see no beauty in the lonely, windswept Abrolohos Islands off the coast of Western Australia. If only something would happen, she thinks desperately, anything just to break the monotony. Then her wish is granted. It starts innocently enough - a glimpse of a face hidden among the bushes on a neighbouring island - but when Julianna goes to investigate she encounters a mystery that is to sweep her away from every security she has ever known and plunge her, alone and bewildered, into a three-hundred-year-old nightmare of shipwreck, mutiny...and murder.
