"What is the link between journalist Laura Harrington and the world-famous aviator Amelia Earhart, who disappeared over the Pacific in 1937? Laura was born in the South Seas and longs to return. Then, in 1969, comes the opportunity of a lifetime, when her work takes her back to make a series about Fijian Independence. There will be a chance to meet again the charismatic Jack Renfrey, who so attracted her on his recent visit to London. More important is the opportunity to confront the father she barely remembers, and learn why he never contacted her after she was evacuated ahead of the Japanese invasion. Most of all, Laura is desperate to discover the facts of her mother's death, only a few weeks later. But her father's answers offer Laura no reassurance. And although passion still sparks between her and Jack, their lives seem destined to split apart. Alone, Laura must unravel the truth and discover not just a horrifically cruel secret at the heart of paradise, but the key to the sensational mystery of Earhart's life."

The Fiji part made me to take this book. And I don't expect anything deep. Good for summer reading, I think. Thank you.
