Publisher's Weekly Review

by Barbara Wood — Published: May 09, 2016

"In Wood’s ambitious 1920s saga, a disinherited English aristocrat and a stifled American heiress marry and settle in largely rustic Palm Springs, Calif., which is just beginning to develop. Seeking his fortune, Nigel Barnstable, Baron Stullwood, begins aggressively building an agricultural business by planting date palm trees. His wife, Elizabeth, who relishes the newfound freedom from her loving but domineering parents, embraces the West and their neighbors, the Native American Cahuilla tribe. As Nigel becomes increasingly controlling and violent, he terrorizes Elizabeth and provokes the Cahuilla by infringing on their land and water..... Woods’s meticulous research provides a moving portrayal of the Cahuilla and their struggle to adapt to the technological and cultural progress that is increasingly affecting their way of life. But most compelling is Elizabeth’s awareness that she has gone from controlling parents to a controlling husband, followed by her evolution from a victim to a courageous defender of the environment. After she frees herself, she seeks out a romantic relationship based on true partnership. At its essence, Wood’s narrative is about respect, resilience, and rebirth. (July)"

Land Of The Afternoon Sun

by Barbara Wood — Published: Feb 12, 2016

I am pleased to announce that my next book is available for pre-order at amazon.  Coming July 2016 !!!

Land Of The Afternoon Sun follows a disinherited English baron and a young New York heiress who marry and move West to build an agricultural empire in Palm Springs in the 1920s when it was just a budding town on the edge of the Mojave Desert. It's a saga about ambition on both large and small scales and the rapidly modernizing world as the harsh, sun-drenched landscape transforms from a Native American haven to the playground of Hollywood's rich and famous.

Land of the Afternoon Sun is also the story of a woman finding her own personality and strength in the West against a breathtaking desert landscape that changes constantly and shows its deadly side in poisonous snakes, flash floods and sand storms, with dramatic moments of forbidden romance, reversals, treachery, betrayal and, ultimately, triumphs.

German Readers: I'm pleased to announce that my book, "Die Insel des verborgenen Feuers", ("Rainbow on the Moon") will be published October 2015.

Zwei junge Frauen in Hawaii zwischen Abenteuer, Liebe und einem Fluch, der sie zu zerstören droht: das neue, große Epos von Bestsellerautorin Barbara Wood.

1820 kommt die junge Amerikanerin Emily Stone nach Hawaii. Das wilde, exotische Land verzaubert und verunsichert sie zugleich. Darf sie ihren Gefühlen für Schiffskapitän Farrow nachgeben? Und wie tief geht die Freundschaft, die sie mit der hawaiianischen Hohepriesterin Mahina verbindet? Alleingelassen und verletzlich trifft Emily eine tragische Entscheidung

Dreißig Jahre später kommt die junge Theresa als Missionsschwester nach Hawaii und trifft dort auf Captain Farrows Sohn Robert. Bald erkennt sie, dass ein dunkler Fluch auf seiner Familie und auf der ganzen Insel lastet – ein Fluch, den sie nur mit der Hilfe von Emily und Mahina lösen kann. Wie kann sie die drohende Katastrophe abwenden, ohne ihr eigenes Glück zu zerstören?
