An imaginative reworking of the French 18th century classic Paul et Virginie, set in London, Mauritius and Rodrigues, Genie and Paul is an utterly original love story. One morning in May 2003, on the cyclone-ravaged island of Rodrigues in the Indian Ocean, the body of a man washes up on the beach. Six weeks previously, another kind of destruction hits Genie in London when she wakes up in hospital to find her brother has gone missing. Genie's search for him leads her to Rodrigues, their island of origin and for her brother Paul, the only place he ever felt at home.
