Married, but obstinately set in their separate ways, writers Hugh and Kristy Foster travel to Al-Bustan, a far-flung island in the Indian Ocean. Too late they discover how it seethes with unrest and intrigue, and their differences become intensified. The author also wrote "The Balkan Trilogy".

“Masterly, calm and dazzling....” – Sunday Telegraph
Olivia Manning, OBE, was born in Portsmouth, England and spent much of her youth in Ireland. She married just before World War II and went to live in Bucharest with her husband. Her experience there formed the basis of the work that makes up The Balkan Trilogy. As the Germans approached Athens, she and her husband evacuated to Egypt and ended up in Jeruslam where her husband worked at the Palestine Broadcasting Station. They returned to London in 1946 and lived there until her death in 1980.
