Green Dolphin Country is an historical novel set in the Channel Islands and New Zealand in the 1830s. It is a haunting love story, which offers a revealing picture of pioneer life in New Zealand.

When William arrives on their island, sisters Marianne and Marguerite are both captivated, but it is Marguerite who catches his eye.

William leaves for a life at sea and eventually settles in New Zealand. Impulsively, he invites Marguerite to join him there, but a slip of the pen results in Marianne making the journey instead.

Marianne must make a new life in a strange land, with a man who loves another. Can she persuade William that he chose the right sister, after all?
