Deirdre, the Oyster's Pearl
Volume TWO of the Deirdre, the Wanderer series
by Jonnie Comet.
Heartsick and once again homeless, the intrepid fifteen-year-old voyager turns her back on a Bahamian paradise and sails a thousand miles to the mystical Virgin Islands, the destination of her most cherished daydreams. But debilitated by drinking binges she is easily seduced by a sadistic drug smuggler; and shady intrigue, sensual interludes, and the perils of storm season in unprotected seas become routine. Now Deirdre must challenge the limits of her own endurance, both physically and emotionally, if she is to survive the most onerous ordeals so far.
'It is nought but the fear of woman's heart,
And a dream of the night, Deirdre.'
- Celtic faery-tale.
