Summary
Annotation. The whole of the harbour was touched with gold ? the tops of the quiet waves, warehouse roofs, the bulging folds of sails at rest, the tips of seagull wings ? giving him one sweeping glimpse of beauty just as he was leaving, a vision of things as they ought always to be just as they were not? March, 1912. A sultry Indian summer hangs over the west coast of Australia and aboard the luxury steamship SS Koombana, three tales entwine. Irene Everley longs to leave her first-class fishbowl existence, secretly penning a gossip column as her life spirals out of control into soulless liaisons and alcohol, the long shadow of a tragedy clouding her view. James Sinclair, an investor on his way to Broome is not the man he says he is but can he be trusted? Abraham Davis, a wealthy dealer whose scandalous divorce is being dragged through the press, prepares to take the gamble of his life: to purchase an infamous, stolen pearl along the journey north. Perfectly round, perfectly pink, this pearl comes with a curse and with a warning ? destroying all who keep it from returning to the sea.
