Language: English. This book usually ship within business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Early in one night, lying awake and pondering on the extraordinary world we live in, the idea came to me of what it must have been like to the cave men who had no language and for whom a sunset had no name tacked on to it, a storm no name, life no name, death no name and birth no name, and the idea came to me of two children, knowing nothing about any of these things,?
Arthur Lestrange embarks on a sea voyage for his health, taking with him his young son Richard and niece Emmeline. But when the ship catches fire and its passengers flee in lifeboats, the family becomes separated, and the two children wash ashore on an uninhabited island in the South Pacific. Accompanied only by an old Irish sailor, Dick and Em must learn to adapt and survive in their new home. But the idyllic beauty of their tropical island belies the danger that surrounds them as they come to terms with forces they cannot understand: life, death, and their growing love for one another.
A huge success on both sides of the Atlantic when first published, Stacpoole s romance returns to print in this first-ever scholarly edition by Adrienne E. This edition features an introduction, notes, and a chronology of Stacpoole s life and career, as well as the unabridged text of the first edition and a cover illustration by Willy Pogany from the rare edition. As Professor Gavin notes in her introduction, Stacpoole s tale of escape from the pressures of modern life and return to a simple life close to nature has lost none of its appeal in the century since its publication; in fact, it may be more relevant today than ever.

The story moves along briskly and Paddy's view spoiler [ultimate demise is horrifying and well told hide spoiler ]. The children grow up in this Eden rediscovered in a state of complete innocence. I enjoyed Emmeline and Richard as children, and as teenagers.

Things get more complicated as they discover their sexual desires and the inevitable happens. Their coming of age is done very delicately--in fact so delicately that it bordered on the unbelievable and the author lost me when view spoiler [Emmeline delivers a baby and doesn't know how it happened.
She was apparently unconscious at the time and somehow she never noticed she was pregnant. Come on! No way! But I suppose this is on one level a parable about innocence and how it might have been mankind never left the Garden. Even with the improbable bits I loved the descriptions of life on Emmeline and Richard's island. If de Vere Stacpoole had left it at that I would rate this one four stars, but the ending was simply ridiculous and very unsatisfying. For maximum enjoyment read the first two parts of this novel and imagine your own ending.
I usually have a hard time giving a book 2 stars This book was no exception. I also bought the whole cousin romance thing, I mean, there was a time when cousins marrying was totally normal. Also, given the fact there were not many other folks around to choose from, it worked.
