The main character, John Hathaway finds that there is a price to pay for living in a paradise. There is a trade-off. John soon learns that the culture of this isolated tropical island has many contradictions. The culture of the Merambas are dominated by the native Merambi. They are both modern and primitive; prudish and promiscuous. John finds it difficult to blend in with this culture of contradictions which relies heavily on an unusual mix of spiritual beliefs derived from the many cultures that have touched the Merambas. But John also finds that the Merambi are a well-mannered and loveable people.
As the story moves along, the author skillfully blends in a blossoming romance between the main character John and a gorgeous Swedish woman he met briefly as she was leaving for Sweden. The author does a wonderful job of describing what it feels like to be stricken by "love at first sight." John is lovesick as he awaits the return of the woman of his dreams.Read more ›
