Evil Paradise is based on the author's unique and moving life story. Jane Schwalger-Wyatt was born the illegitimate child of a wealthy plantation owner's nephew and a traditional village girl on the exotic Polynesian island of Samoa. Born between two cultures and classes in the turbulent post-colonial years, and unwanted by either parent, her future looked bleak. After Jane's birth, a pact was made between her grandmother and her wealthy great aunt. Jane spent her first ten years as a village girl raised by her grandmother, with her identity kept secret. Although adored by her grandmother, she endured hardship, brutality, and sexual abuse. Upon her grandmother's death, Jane escaped to what she thought would be paradise on earth: her rich aunt's estate, but she discovered that it held terrible secrets. In time, Jane learned about the savage history that blighted the plantation and the bizarre secret kept hidden upstairs in the mansion. After a failed reunion with her father, she was sent to her mother in New Zealand, where she was rejected yet again. Whilst battling overwhelming obstacles to make a life for herself, Jane's second child was diagnosed with profound disabilities. How she managed to endure proves an unparalleled feat of human endurance and faith. She clung to the few that truly loved her, striving to make a life for herself with fierce and inspirational determination. Jane Schwalger-Wyatt lives in Brisbane Australia, and is writing the sequel. "The end is not the end but a new beginning. Evil Paradise is a tale with the timeless theme of good versus evil, the triumph of faith and hope over fear and violence, making it a compelling and uplifting story for all."

I found it difficult to put this book down. It is difficult to believe what Jane had to endure from the time that she was born. You will find this story confronting and yet Jane comes through showing the positive side even in diversity. Read it, you will not be disappointed, in fact you will not be able to wait for the second book to come out!
