'A shadow, a swift movement, a shout; it was quick. instinctively, she raised her
arm to protect herself'

Hannah Stanton has no family now, except for these strangers who live among
cannibals. Her first impression of the island is of white sand and waving palms
but the jungle hides deception and death. Who is the mysterious figure watching
from the darkness and will Hannah's defiant spirit wither under the glare of her
missionary uncle and aunt?

Hannah needs all her strength to survive baptism of fire.
