Pacific by Judy Nunn
A story of love, sacrifice and revenge swept along on the winds of war from the bestselling author of Heritage.

Young Australian actor Samantha Lindsay, fresh from her success on the London stage, is thrilled when she scored the lead role in the latest Hollywood war epic, Torpedo Junction, to be filmed in the romantic South Pacific islands of Vanuatu. It’s the role of a lifetime.

In another era, Jane Thackeray travels from her home in England to the fat distant islands of the New Hebrides with her husband, a Presbyterian missionary. Ensnared in the turmoil of war in the South Pacific, Jane witnesses the devastating effect human conflict has upon an innocent race of people. As the winds of war sweep the sleepy island paradise, she meets Charles ‘Wolf’ Baker, a charismatic American fighter pilot, and Jean-François Marat, a powerful French plantation owner. Their lives become entwined in a maelstrom of love, hate, sacrifice and revenge.

On location in Vanuatu, Samantha plays a character based on the life of ‘Mamma Tack’, a World War II heroine who was invaluable to both the US forces and the New Hebridean natives. Uncanny parallels between history and fiction emerge and Sam begins a quest for the truth. Just who was the real Mamma Tack? And what mysterious forces are at play, reaching from the past to manipulate her life? The answers reveal not only bygone secrets but Sam’s own destiny.

From the dark days of Dunkirk to the vicious fighting that was Guadalcanal, from the sedate beauty of the English Channel ports to a tropical paradise, Pacific is Judy Nunn at her enthralling best.
