Equator: A Novel

Written by Wayne Ashton


Buy the Ebook

The year is 1947 – Carlos slips over the orphanage wall in search of the village girl who has captured his heart.

From that moment, his is a life at sea, a life that moves across the globe and across generations, lived on the turning tides of love affairs, friendships and enmities.

‘Reading Equator is like immersing yourself in a butterfly dance while being mesmerised by history … The characters … begin their traversing of time and place in 1947, Spain, but the story soon exquisitely deviates into 2009 London, 1930s India and passages on memory, love, luck, good and evil.’ Readings Monthly
