FERENC MÁTÉ, SEA OF LOST DREAMS: A DUGGER/NELLO NOVEL--FICTION
Sea of Lost Dreams is an explosive sea adventure of intrigue set in the early twentieth century in French Polynesia. It's 1921 Mexico. Ne'er-do-well sea captain Dugger and his sardonic friend Nello break out of jail and set sail for a new beginning in Tahiti. Aboard are two mysterious passengers: a beautiful escapee from an Irish convent, searching for her twin brother; and a French master spy, hunting the leader of an anticolonial rebellion. But both are searching for more than they admit to-both have enormous secrets of the heart. After a hurricane-battered sea voyage, Gauguin's beguiling Tahitian daughter pilots them through a mountainous jungle of recent infanticide and cannibalism. Aiding the rebels, they provoke the French navy's unleashed revenge in a breathtaking chase through violent black squalls and treacherous reefs. Friendship, love, loyalty, and faith are in a crucible. The exhilarating quest unravels amid the uprising of a doomed culture and the startling convergence of the characters' destinies.
Ferenc Máté has made a career of out documenting his own quests, whether it's restoring a Tuscan ruin, building a vineyard from scratch, or sailing the seven seas. Born in Transylvania, he escaped at age eleven when the Hungarian revolution was crushed by Soviet tanks. He grew up in Vancouver and has lived in California, Paris, Rome, the Bahamas and New York. He has worked on a railroad extra-gang and as a boat-builder, photographer, deckhand and book editor. He is the author of 16 books translated into 12 languages. His international bestseller A Vineyard in Tuscany, was a New York Times Notable Book, and shortlisted for Spain's literary Camino del Cid award. His Dugger/Nello historical novel series have made him "the leading nautical writer of our time." With his wife and son, he works the Máté vineyards surrounding the 13th century friary they restored in Montalcino, Italy. They have won global recognition for making one of the world's best Brunellos.
