Inhaltsangabe: In 1903, a young Scotswoman named Mary Mackenzie sets sail for China to marry her betrothed, a military attachE in Peking. But soon after her arrival, Mary falls into an adulterous affair with a young Japanese nobleman, scandalizing the British community. Casting her out of the European community, her compatriots tear her away from her small daughter. A woman abandoned and alone, Mary learns to survive over forty tumultuous years in Asia, including two world wars and the cataclysmic Tokyo earthquake of 1923.
Über den Autor: Oswald Wynd was brought up in Japan by Scots missionary parents, returning to Scotland in 1932 to take up a place at Edinburgh University. During the war he was commissioned into the Intelligence Corps and sent to Malaya. He was captured by the Japanese after a week alone in the jungle, following the fall of Singapore, and spent over three years in a POW camp, during which he was mentioned in dispatches for his interpreting work. During the last year of the war he began a novel which won the Doubleday prize in 1947. He now lives in Scotland and writes thrillers under the pseudonym Gavin Black.
