Editorial Reviews for this title:
With her three sons, Lucy Irvine went to live for a year on remote Pigeon Island in the Solomons. The invitation had come from an intrepid 80 year-old, Diana Hepworth, who in 1947 set sail from England to find a faraway paradise where she and her husband Tom could raise a family.
Seventeen years after the events described in Castaway, Lucy Irvine was traveling again. With her three sons, she went to live for a year on remote Pigeon Island in the farthest corner of the Solomons. The invitation had come from eighty–year–old former VOGUE model Diana Hepworth, who, in 1947, set sail from England on a hazardous journey to find a far–flung paradise where she and her husband could raise a family. Faraway is the tale of two worlds in which tragedy, heroism, joy and regret combine in one remarkable story.
