Publisher's Summary

An epic story of love, sacrifice and revenge swept along on the winds of war. 

Australian actress Samantha Lindsay is thrilled when she scores her first lead movie role in the Hollywood epic Torpedo Junction, playing a character based on World War II heroine 'Mamma Tack'. 

But as filming begins in Vanuatu, uncanny parallels between history and fiction emerge. Just who was the real Mamma Tack? And what mysterious forces are at play? The answers reveal not only bygone secrets but Sam's own destiny. 

In another era, Jane Thackeray travels from England to the far distant islands of the New Hebrides. Ensnared in the turmoil of war, Jane witnesses the devastating effect human conflict has upon an innocent race of people. There she meets Charles 'Wolf' Baker, a charismatic fighter pilot, and Jean-Francois Marat, a powerful plantation owner - and soon their lives are entwined in a maelstrom of love and hate.... 

From the dark days of Dunkirk to the vicious fighting that was Guadalcanal, from the sedate beauty of the English Channel ports to a tropical paradise, Pacific is Judy Nunn at her enthralling best.

Narrator lets it down

This is a fantastic story, however, the Narrator lets it down. It seemed to me that she was rushing to get the novel over asap. It ruined my enjoyment of a great story.

Captivating story

Really enjoyed the story but wish I had read on Kindle instead of Audible. I found the narration grating and at times screeching and loud.

Another great story from Judy!

An absolutely fantastic story. A tad predictable at times but it's still one of the best stories so far.
The narrator is a little too "BBC" for an Aussie in my opinion. It makes the English accents a little soft and not so effective. And her American is a little twangy.
I still couldn't stop listening though! Not for a second! She has taken me on another journey that made me feel every emotion. And I even shed a tear or two! What an AMAZING novel. And the narration REALLY brings it to life.
