An Abundance of Rain

(1989)
A novel by

 
 
Kate De Marly leaves England and a well-ordered life behind her to travel to the Fijian island of Lesa. She is excited about her reunion with Sam McGuire, the father who abandoned her as a child. On the ship she is devastated to learn the meeting will never happen - Sam is dead. His sugar plantation is now hers. Island life weaves its seductive spell over her, but there are questions Kate seeks answers to. Was her father's death an accident? Why is someone so eager to buy the land? What are the secrets threatening her own life? And then the approaching cyclone hits...

Anglo-Irish actress Carol Drinkwater is still well-known for her award-winning portrayal of Helen Herriot in the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small. A popular and acclaimed author and film-maker as well, Carol has published twenty books for both the adult and young adult markets. She is currently at work on her twenty-first title.

When she purchased a rundown property overlooking the Bay of Cannes in France, she discovered almost seventy 400-year-old olive trees. Along with her French husband, Michel, Carol reclaimed the land and began producing top-quality olive oil. Her series of memoirs recounting their experiences on the farm (The Olive Farm, The Olive Season, The Olive Harvest and Return to the Olive Farm) have become international bestsellers, and the related travel books,The Olive Route and The Olive Tree, inspired the five-part documentary film series, The Olive Route.

Carol's first Kindle Single, The Girl in Room Fourteen, reached the number one position in the Singles charts in both the United States and the UK.
