There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The Japanese occupation of Thailand during the war was brutal and the use of British soldiers to build a railroad through the harsh jungles and countryside, beaten and starved, is well documented. The plot here entails this woman’s need to find closure after so many years and after the death of her husband.
I enjoy reading books by Ann Bennet as she does the research to create an excellent story of lost love here. I just wish the descriptions of characters were a little better. But the surprise ending rather makes up for it.
I will certainly recommend to readers of historical fiction and look forward to her next book.

The story of the Thai resistance organisation is not one that I had heard of before,but they were obviously very brave like their counterparts that are more familiar in France, Italy and Greece.
I would highly recommend the entire trilogy. Many thanks to Ann Bennett for a wonderful series of informative and enjoyable books. I hope that she will continue to write further historical fiction in the future.
