It's 1913 and Cameron McKenzie, a young Scotsman, has come to Broome hoping to find a pearl that will make his fortune. And he does, but it is stolen the same day by another pearler, Patrick Flynn, when Cam foolishly shows the Irishman his prize. Returning to shore bitter and determined to get his revenge, Cam meets the beautiful but feisty Kate. But the revelation that she is Flynn's daughter sets off a chain of events neither could have predicted. Set against the backdrop of pearling in Broome in the early 20th century, and filled with a fascinating array of characters, including Japanese pearl divers, Chinese traders and every kind of scoundrel on the make, PEARLS is a rollicking historical tale rendered in rich detail by a master of the genre.
