Gael Morrison

writing about love and adventure in exotic locations


Written By: Gael

Magic of the Drums cover cropped 9781614175995After failing to save her risk-taking father’s life, Dr. Lise Dawson hangs up her stethoscope and seeks refuge with her aunt, a Catholic nun working in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.

Met at the airport by coffee-plantation owner Simon McDowell, a University educated Aussie, Lise is reminded why she hung up her heart, too.

Which suits Simon just fine. His ex-wife, also a medical doctor, couldn’t hack it in Papua New Guinea, either. Then Simon helps Lise deliver a plantation-worker’s breech baby, and shortly afterwards flies her through
a mountain storm in his two-seater plane to aid a village man gored by a boar.

Yet, despite Lise’s newly-found white-knuckled bravery, nothing can
convince her to risk her heart on Simon—a dare-devil just like her father.

Until she discovers the magical allure of the drums.

“Against the backdrop of coffee plantations and the settlement’s clinic, Morrison presents two uniquely individual characters who learn that to love is to accept as well as encourage.” –  Leta Nolal Childers, Scribes Word Reviews
