A young, up-and-coming Swedish officer is suddenly and traumatically
forced into the role of victim, as his newly wedded bride is defiled and
murdered by pirates. In an exotic 18th century colonial setting, this novel
explores the psychology of trauma, dissociation and redemption. Set against a
political backdrop of the era, with revolution and romantic individualism
versus etiquette and conformity.

and a love of theatre and film followed in his teens. Sten's professional
acting career began at age 22 and led eventually to the acting company of the
Stratford Festival under Robin Phillips. This inspired him to pursue a career
in directing and he is the founding Artistic Director of Guild Festival Theatre
in Scarborough, Ontario (www.guildfestivaltheatre.ca). In TV and film, Sten has
worked on-camera with Gene Wilder, Charlton Heston and David Carradine. Having
spent over three decades employed in professional theatre, TV and film, Sten's

with 15 years of experience treating a wide variety of ailments and issues.
