by Tatjana Soli - Fiction

On a small, unnamed coral atoll in the South Pacific, a group of troubled dreamers must face the possibility that the hopes they’ve labored after so single-mindedly might not lead them to the happiness they feel they were promised. By turns funny and tragic, THE LAST GOOD PARADISE explores our modern, complex and often self-contradictory discontents, crafting an exhilarating and darkly satirical story about our need to connect in an increasingly networked but isolating world.

Claire Nagy’s love for Forster Baumsarg, the only son of prominent California citrus ranchers, is so strong that not even the tragic death of her son Joshua at kidnappers’ hands, her alienation from her two daughters, or the dissolution of her marriage can pull her from the ranch she’s devoted her life to preserving. But Claire is about to face her greatest struggle: an illness that threatens to take her very life.
