Sandalwood Blood

The story is set in the early nineteenth century in and around the Pacific concerning Captain Lovat Mellon and his voyage from Manila to Fiji, where he hopes to take on a load of Sandalwood for China. On board is the son of the owner's business partner, Julian Boston. Julian is engaged to Edalene Kerr, the owner's daughter. Not wishing to be separated from Julian, Edalene masquerades as young Joseph Philips, one of the three young lads enlisted on this trip. In South Africa, Lovat takes on board Elizabeth Morey and her maid Eliza. Stopping off at Tonga Taboo most of the crew, including the Captain are murdered by the islanders; aided in this by the duplicity of a man called Doyle, a castaway in league with the chief. The surviving team of seven; daring to stay alive against all elements catapults their human frailty over and above mere mortals.

 A Hint of Blue

Literature

A Hint of Blue

This story of a young adult, whose behavior is mostly considered erratic by a grandmother, attempts to draw linkages between the elderly and young. The current generational gap pertains mainly to issues of everyday living. More so, this narrative presents strongly the actuality that we need our past to build an even better future. Regardless, this unique story, more evocatively, discusses various camaraderie, no matter what form, and regardless of whatever dissimilarities that come into play. The ideology - where there’s hope, there’ll be a way, is upheld in this moving chronicle. Fortunately, and given a chance, there’s hope that much shared purpose is found, therefore enjoyed in every life, when in companionship. Almost 60 years’ events, mainly drawn from the author’s personal life-experience, and when with those in close association, legitimizes and forms a foundation for a myriad of moments purported in this writing.

Ron Crocombe E Toa!

History & Biography

Ron Crocombe E Toa!

“This book is divided into broad categories of land, politics, history and culture showing the wide-ranging interests of the Crocombes and the writers they inspired. As to be expected, many chapters discuss the Cook Islands, where the Crocombes returned year after year and based themselves in ‘retirement’. Other chapters analyse and discuss the historical, linguistic, political and other kinds of links radiating throughout our region. This very Pacific book is an example of the cross cultural, interdisciplinary, all-encompassing way in which Ron and Marjorie worked.”
