    One thought on “Children of the Sun”

    1. A historical fiction of massive proportions about a Polynesian seafarer Tumara from what appears to be Niu in modern Tuvalu, but little of the novel is set there The novel tries a bit too hard to fit Tumara into too many story lines of the 16th 17th century maritime wars between Spain and England On the plus side a story is created, which is a bonus over so much historical fiction that merely adds a bit of dialogue to what the history books say.
