    Nicholas Duncan is a semi-retired shipping magnate who resides in idyllic Beautiful Bay in Indonesia, where he is known as the old patriarch of the islands. He is grieving the loss of his beautiful Eurasian wife, Anna, and is suffering for the first time from disturbing flashbacks to WWII, the scene of their first meeting and early love. His other wartime lover is the striking Marg Hamilton, a powerful and influential political player in Australia who has remained close to Nick.

    Would you listen to Fishing for Stars again? Why?

    Highly recommend Fishing for Stars as the plot intrigues then consumes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fishing for Stars?

    The character, Anna, held up against injustice imposed by the Japanese. Love her strength, power and dignity.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anna meeting with the Japanese boat dealers in Japan.


    Any additional comments?

    Bryce Courtney + Humphrey Bower = Symbiotic Relationship. 'Persimmon Tree' and sequel 'Fishing for Stars' is a must read that will not disappoint. Bryce Courtney's research is flawless--love his character's imperfection,
