They then journey out to New Zealand to explore and finally settle there. Over the years the marriage starts to falter and in the opening chapter of So You Returned to Sark it comes to a dramatic head. Chris returns to Sark with the love of her life, Peter, and begins a very different existence. She becomes involved in many activities in the community- from the Water Carnival to the Sheep Races and the Channel Island Music Council to founding the Sark Garden Walks. She continues as the Island nurse, and trains to be a Homeopath, holding clinics in Sark and the neighbouring Island of Guernsey.

Over the seventeen years of this book we meet many interesting characters. We enter into the unique life of this beautiful Island, which is still car-free and has a Seigneur at the head of its own parliament or Chief Pleas. Chris has to call on all her courage and strength to cope with situations that can arise in a small community- but it is that community that rallies in the end to help her through the most difficult time in her life.

The earlier books are: So You Want to Live on Sark, describing how Chris and Ken leave their jobs as a district nurse and advertising executive in London, and open their guest house and smallholding of 200 hens, two goats, a donkey, hives of bees, a dog and cats. From a Feudal Isle to Aotearoa where the family travel to New Zealand by ship and buy a Bedford van to live in.

They tour both the North and South Islands, getting jobs when the money runs out. From Queens Nurse to Godzone, tells of Chris earlier days as a district nurse in London in the 60s and in New Zealand in the 70s.

All the books are illustrated by the author and there are many black and white phot
