AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Parma had come to New Guinea - she hoped - to marry Alec Rivers, after a whirlwind romance. But instead she found Alec nowhere near as enthusiastic as he had been, and that overbearing Pierce Adams getting entirely the wrong idea about her. 'It's not you in particular I dislike, Miss drew,' he told her. 'It's your kind in general. Young, sexually attractive, citified girls who come to the Territory without bothering to find out what it's all about.' And yet, paradoxically, the more Alec cooled off the more Parma was coming to love New Guinea and its people, its way - and the more she found herself thinking about Pierce. Could she ever make him see that she was not the frivolous butterfly type he thought she was? - back cover
