B E Holland


B. E. Holland, an Australian oil and gas engineer has been an inveterate traveller, his work taking him to more than fifty countries. This debut novel has been in the pipeline for about ten years. Several other unpublished stories are waiting for retirement. The Author lives in Western Australia, has a small fishing boat he never finds time to launch and a vintage car whose restoration remains on hold.

The story, spanning seventy years, tells of despair and hope, and love won and lost. When World War II was finally over, migrants from all over the world arrived in Australia to escape the hardships they had endured. They made lives for themselves despite the prejudices levelled by the old Australians.

Refugees was not the buzzword then – they were migrants, the new Australians.
This is one of their stories...

Diamonds are forever... A tale of love, intrigue and lust! She could see water bubbling in from a hole in the fuselage next to a lifeless body floating face down. 'You shot a hole in the plane,' she leveled accusingly. She wondered where the calm rationale came from, considering her situation, trapped in a flying boat on the high seas with a dead man and a homicidal maniac.
