Published in 2001, Henderson’s Spear is an engrossing page-turner.   Critically acclaimed Canadian author Ronald Wright skillfully weaves 2 narratives that occur roughly a century apart.  Olivia, a Canadian film-maker imprisoned in Tahiti, receives a letter from the daughter she gave up in England at the age of 16.  So begins her long letter to her daughter, describing her childhood and family living in the house of her distant cousin, Frank Henderson.   The 2nd narrative is from the diaries of Henderson, a naval officer serving in the South Seas at the end
