SF novel.

''described by the author as ''a female Lord of the Flies'', this book is every bit as chilling and brutal as Golding's. It is around 1919 and Charlotte, a young widow, takes on the job of tutoring the daughters of British subjects in Burma. She enters into a passionate affair with John Dollar, captain of a small ship. Soon a foreshadowing of the savagery to come occurs on an apparently genteel picnic when the migration of sea turtles to lay their eggs on the beach becomes a blood bath. In very quick order a tidal wave strikes, the young girls are left to survive on their own with a paralyzed John Dollar, and a group with no code of behavior or morals drifts into shocking cannibalism. The last 20 pages of the book are spine tingling''.
