Sailing towards one of the islands of the Eastern Archipelago where his friend Hassim awaits help to regain his kingdom, Captain Tom Lingard is called to rescue an English yacht stranded on a sandbank. On board is beautiful Mrs. Travers, a woman from a wholly different world, but with a spirited independence that matches Lingard's own. In this story of love and choice, Lingard emerges alongside Willems and Mister Kurtz as one of Conrad's finest creations.
