When two young doctors, Michele and Michael Browne, embarked on a two-year volunteer sojourn to a tiny Pacific island in the 1980s, they were faced with far more than they had expected. While they experienced adventure and humour in this picturesque setting, their intense isolation, and the life and death encounters that they faced in their medical work, tested their resilience as never before. When personal tragedy struck their young family late in their posting, they found themselves profoundly changed - both then and ever since.

Industry Reviews

'The expat's life is on full display in Michele Browne's 'Beyond the Reef', a book about moving from Australia to a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific, about learning to cope, learning the customs, and saving lives as doctors during their stay in the Cook Islands from 1988 to 89. In these pages you'll have the unique opportunity to live the sometimes harrowing, at times heartbreaking, and other times hilarious adventures in Beyond the Reef. You'll be richer for it.' - Brent Meske, author, and English Lecturer at the Joongbu University in Korea.


'I commend this book for its whimsical and gentle encouraging Christian message of service and love. In this time of chaos and anxiety, it will help people to reflect on our neighbours, Australia and our place in the world.' - Peter Bentley, Past-President of the Australasian Religious Press Association.
