Inhaltsangabe:

70th Anniversary of the end of World War II and the liberation of Hong Kong from the Japanese. A coming of age story set against the background of conflict and changing values in society.

From the perils of internment to the beauty of Hong Kong?s fragrant harbour, Siobhan Daiko?s novel will take you on a sensuous journey of adventure, romance and redemption.

Those who enjoy the work of Kate Furnivall, Ann Bennett and John Lanchester should also like The Orchid Tree.

An evocative and mesmerising read.

Renita D'Silva, bestselling author of Monsoon Memories.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fifteen year-old Kate Wolseley lives a rarefied life of wealth and privilege in the expatriate community. But when the Japanese take over the colony in December 1941, she?s interned in squalid Stanley Camp with her parents. Forty miles away, in Macau, Sofia Rodrigues? suspicions are aroused when her father invites a Japanese family to dinner, an event which leads to a breach between Sofia and her controlling half-brother, Leo. Enduring cramped conditions, humiliation, disease, and starvation, Kate befriends seventeen year-old Charles ? who?s half Chinese - and they give their hearts to each other under the orchid tree. Can their love survive the war? In December 1948, Kate returns to Hong Kong, determined to put the past behind her. Sofia dreams of leaving Macau and starting a new life, and she won?t let anyone, not even Leo, stop her. A young Englishman, James, becomes the link between Kate and Sofia. The communist-nationalist struggle in China spills over into the colony, catapulting the protagonists into the turmoil with disastrous consequences.
