An island-hoping affair, alternating between present-day Orkney and 1930s Penang.
By Andrew Greig
In the early 1930s, an ambitious young Scotsman sets out on the long sea voyage to Penang, eager to take up his post running a maternity hospital in the colony, and eager for the new opportunities that will open up for him there. He very quickly makes the acquaintance of two sisters, both very beautiful young women, one looking for a husband, the other married.
In the confines of the ship, when conventional morality is shelved for the duration, the seeds of a scandal, which will rock the close island community of Penang, are sown.
