Overview

Marcella, a young and beautiful mixed-race

Island Princess is kidnapped from New

Caledonia in 1870 and taken to Australia.

Enslaved by Captain Oliver Morgan, she

is hidden away on his country estate till a

police raid forces him to offload her to the

owner of a sugar cane plantation. Having

paid good money for the transfer, the

planter’s wife positions Marcella to become

the wife of her drunkard son. Marcella,

despite harassment and threats, refuses

to submit until she learns that the son is

a psychopath. An inordinate number of

the plantation’s Islander workers have

mysteriously disappeared and she fears she

will be next.

About the Author

Robert Prince is something of a hybrid, a man equally happy mustering wild cattle on horseback in the Australian bush or sitting quietly researching history. His writings reflect this love for outdoor adventure and academic research, combining the two to present racy stories based on historical themes.

A snapshot of his life includes being raised as the son of a sugar-mill manager in the tropical paradise of Mossman, North Queensland, Australia; graduating from the University of New England with a B Econ; marrying a country girl; raising four beautiful children; and being a successful businessman.

As principal of his own accounting practice he enjoyed the freedom to choose and diversify, with side interests being sugarcane farming and cattle grazing. He has been referred to as the Phantom Accountant, to describe his absence from the office while attending to his spread of interests.

Since retiring from business, writing has become a passion, with the publication of his novels The Farrier's Son, Shadows of the Mountain and Kidnapped in the South Pacific.

After experiencing the rigors of life he has come to the conclusion that creative writing is the ultimate escape.
