I didn't know anything about this story before I bought this book but I got straight into it. It's a wonderful book and a very sad funny and moving tale. The writing carries you along, and you can easily imagine yourself in wartime England as well as appreciate the horrors of Donald Hill's prisoner of war camp. I would highly recommend this book.

Can't imagine why this book isn't better-known, as it is such an elemental tale of war, with its separations, trauma and transformations. It focuses on one couple's wartime experiences, but tells a much broader story of what war does to individuals and families. It is also a remarkably detailed tale of life in a Japanese prisoner of war camp, somewhat akin to Agnes Keith's Three Came Home. Rich and full.

Arrived in excellent condition well within the expected time. I say the new musical that has been written about this story and wanted to learn more. The book is not 'gripping' - yet - I have not finished reading it but does give a really comprehensive overview of the fall of Hong Kong in 1939.
