From Library Journal
The great Conrad's 1920 novel was one of the last to be published before his death four years later. The plot follows the mislaid plans of protagonist Captain Tom Lingard, who, on his way to help a native friend regain his land, falls in love with a married woman whose yacht he saves from floundering.

Sailing towards one of the islands of the Eastern Archipelago where his friend Hassim awaits help to regain his kingdom, Captain Tom Lingard is called to rescue an English yacht stranded on a sandbank. On board is beautiful Mrs. Travers, a woman from a wholly different world, but with a spirited independence that matches Lingard's own. In this story of love and choice, Lingard emerges alongside Willems and Mister Kurtz as one of Conrad's finest creations.
