Spirits of the Sun

A novel about love, murder, and a struggle for survival

This is a story unlike any other… a story from thousands of years ago. It is a story of ‘love’ struggling to survive amid the harsh primal urges of our tribal humanity.

Available in ebook, paperback, or hardcover

What would you do for love?

A girl is walking alone along a beach. This is Melati, a young Malay girl, who is wanted as a bride by the old chief of a Java tribe.

She strolls along the beach on her own, her hair loose and blowing in the light breeze. Melati is growing up and yearns to be free – but she is also in danger of attracting attention…

Melati, a young Malay girl, is wanted as a bride by the old chief of a powerful Java tribe. Her Malay tribe reject the marriage proposal and the Java threaten to attack. To escape the Java, the Malay try to build a big boat to sail to another land – but before their boat is ready, a callous murder shatters the fragile peace between the tribes.

Her brother, Bandri, tries to identify the murderer, create trust, and prevent any further violence. But tensions escalate when a relationship develops between a Java girl and another Malay tribesman. Will Melati be forced to marry the Java chief? Can Bandri prevent a tribal war? Can the Malay tribe survive – or will they all be slaughtered?

Spirits of the Sun is based on genuine historical events in the tropical rainforests of Indonesia. It is both a dramatic exploration of our primal human nature and a realistic adventure into our natural world…
