About this item

Janice Lee's debut novel depicts the lives and loves of a pair of British expatriates amidst the 1940s Japanese occupation of Hong Kong. Clare Pendleton is a new bride when she arrives in Hong Kong in 1951, and takes a job as a piano teacher to the children of a wealthy family. The family's chauffeur, Will Truesdale, quickly sets his sights on Clare, and a dangerous game of seduction and retreat begins. As their affair begins, Will's previous romance with a bold and beautiful Eurasian named Trudy is revealed, exposing the emotional damage he has suffered and may now intend for Clare.
Hired by the wealthy Chen family as a piano instructor, Claire Pendleton is seduced by the social life of Hong Kong's expatriate community and begins an affair with Will Truesdale, an enigmatic Englishman with a devastating past.
