This is a fictional treatment of the Batavia shipwreck off the Western Australia coastline in 1629. The author helped locate the wreck 300 years later.

The Author:
Henrietta Drake-Brockman (27 July 1901 - 8 March 1968) was born in Perth, Western Australia, and from an early age intended to become an artist.

She was educated in Western Australia, Scotland and New South Wales, but when at the age of twenty she married and went to roam in the Kimberleys and live at Broome with her engineer husband, Geoffrey Drake-Brockman, she gave up all thought of painting on canvas and took to pen and paper.

I ordered this book for a birthday present but wasn’t going to be home for the initial delivery date. I contacted Marianne, who kindly offered to hold off on posting the book until I was home. When the book arrived it was also lovingly wrapped which was an unexpected surprise and much appreciated. Not only a vintage book to enjoy but a lovely experience as well. Thanks again.
