Heading into a typhoon in the South China Sea, the Sirdar is on a course that will forever change the life of one of its most spirited and attractive passengers, Iris Deane. When the ship breaks in two on a barrier reef, the young woman is pulled to safety by Robert Jenks, a sailor who is more than he seems. The shipwreck’s only survivors, the two find themselves washed ashore on a desert island, where they encounter untold adventures and a blossoming romance.

First published in 1903, The Wings of the Morning is an exciting tale of perils from storms, sharks, and head-hunting island natives. It is also a tale of attraction, as a modest young woman and her mysterious rescuer are drawn together by adventure and circumstance.

More than 50 years before action-adventure films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Louis Tracy wrote novels teeming with the kind of thrills that make the heart race. The Wings of the Morning is a prime example.
