PRLog - Nov. 12, 2010 - GOLD COAST, Australia -- It’s a heady mixture when you put the magnificent nubile wahines of Tahiti with brash, inexperienced young men fresh from England. No matter that these young men were Christian missionaries. It was the year 1797 and the strangely named ship, Duff, carried thirty volunteers from the London Missionary Society to the exotic and little-known South Seas. Eighteen of them stayed on Tahiti and the balance sailed off to Tonga.
Temptation Island Cover
Most of the missionaries who elected to stay in Tahiti were married and accompanied by their wives and children. Two of the originals were unattached single men. The coming of the missionaries to the area is a well-documented fact.
What happened to them in this novel is fiction; although with the free and easy life in Tahiti in those years it might well have happened anyway.
The restrictions imposed by the Christian way of life collide head-on with the sybaritic lifestyle of the well-endowed and willing Polynesian wahines. A great adventure of a time not so long ago.
Gordon Carr lives on the Gold Coast. He has a background in mining and a love of history and writing, particularly the islands. There is a fifth novel in the pipeline.
