How would you cope if your husband suddenly - and totally inexplicably - abandoned you and your small child at the other end of the earth ? "French Sand" is set on the South Pacific island of New Caledonia in the 1960s. Melanie, a young English woman living there, sets out to find why her husband left her and she almost gets herself killed in the process. A gripping story based on an event that took place when the author lived there, this story takes us to lands few have been to.
