Escape to Sark

Monique (Nikki) de Caen is third generation Tobagan French. She lives in London with her grandmother Fleur, whom she calls Gran'mom, as her parents left her to go to America. They said they would send for her but never did. Nikki is a rebel. Although she qualified as a Nurse, she becomes involved with the 1960s 'Flower Power Movement, ' much to her grandmother's disgust. Here she meets Jacko who goes off with money Nikki had saved to go to America. After an argument with Fleur, Nikki answers an advertisement for a horse-drawn carriage driver in the tiny car-free Feudal Island of Sark in the British Channel Isles. She has no intention of staying, but travels on the overnight ferry as an act of pique, still dressed in her flamboyant 'Beatnik' clothes. At first people do not know what to make of this feisty, exotic young woman. With her mane of dark hair, almond-shaped eyes and creamy complexion she attracts a lot of attention: particularly from Tony Green who has taken a job driving a tractor for one of the Island's stores. He has escaped from his wealthy background and plans to have his own small farm and smallholding on Sark. Gradually the young woman realizes this unique and beautiful Island holds the answer to her feeling of not belonging anywhere. She has to call on all her resources to find her place among new friends and to accept a future beyond her wildest dreams

About the Author

Chris Davies Curtis was born in Yorkshire England, and spent her school years in Stratford-upon-Avon with her parents and elder brother David. She then trained to be a registered nurse, meeting her future husband on a pony trekking holiday. Four years after marrying Londoner, Ken they moved to the British Channel Isle of Sark. After about seven years of running a guest house and smallholding they decided to explore New Zealand in a Bedford van for two years, taking young son Roy with them. Various jobs paid the way, and they returned to Sark to lease their property and emigrate back to New Zealand. Here Chris became a rural District Nurse. Sadly the marriage ended and Chris returned to Sark, where she lived with a partner for 17 years, until he died of a brain tumour. She now lives north of Auckland, near her son and family. Writing has always been a hobby (her father was a short story writer), and she has now published four 'memoirs' about her eventful life. Now she is writing Medical Romances, using some of her own experiences. They are proving popular in the UK. Several are 'in the pipeline.'
