About this ebook

Smuggled ashore by the kind widow Merry D’Angelo, Maria begins her new life in the colonial port city of Fremantle. But no matter how settled she seems, Maria can't stop wondering about what happened to William McGregor.

Yet danger lurks beneath the surface of the turbulent harbour waters as her past races to catch up with her; threatening her future and her friends, and forcing her to choose between her old love and the new.

culture-shock, mermaid A castaway from the storm with no language skills and a totally different way of dressing, she is convinced that she is responsible for the death of the man she loves. She has been befriended by an older woman who tries to help. There are many misunderstandings and difficulties, and another man who loves her. It is written with such empathy that it seems so real. I loved it and can't wait until the next one!

My only complaint - Ocean's Trial is too short. Being an Aussie I enjoyed the setting. The characters are well rounded and portrayed with believable foibles which makes it a pleasure to read.

About the author

USA Today bestselling author Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.
She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.
