   schema:reviewBody ""Two naturalists find unexpected love as they work to save a rare bird species on an island off the coast of Mauritius. Both are haunted by old ghosts and hardened by past tragedies. Fran mourns the mysterious death of her Mauritian lover; Christian, a former International Red Cross worker, has recently arrived from Bosnia, where the woman he loved disappeared during the war. As the two of them slowly learn to trust again, they must also contend with strange threats to the island that put everything at risk." "Darwin's Wink is a story that weaves emotional explorations of love, fertility, evolution, and survival - all against an exotic, lush island setting. This is a book for the readers of Andrea Barrett, Barbara Kingsolver, and other writiers who marry story and nature."--Jacket." ;
