In 1851, Harrison Bartlett boards the brigantine Enchantress, escaping to the East Indies from the painful memory of his late wife. His ship sinks in a Pacific storm. The sole survivor, he washes ashore on a deserted volcanic island. Struggling to survive, he meets a fellow castaway, a native island girl named Anapele. She teaches him local ways and they begin to thrive. Just as they consummate the growing bond between them, events conspire to force them to decide how, or even if, they can stay together forever.
Shipwrecked on a tropical island, a man meets a beautiful woman castaway. Is their growing love eternal or eternally doomed? Island Girl, a short story by Russell James.
