  • Historical Fiction Penang 1930's

    Evie Fraser is working as a companion for Mrs. Shipley-Thomas and after 9 years it’s so boring. When a unexpected marriage proposal arrives by post from Douglas Barrington she throws caution to the wind, this could be her only chance of getting married and she accepts. She met the handsome Douglas just once; years ago at his first wedding and she’s never forgotten him. Douglas is now a widower, he has a young daughter Jasmine and she’s keen to leave England, live in a new country and marry him. Evie is excited to be sailing to Malaya and when her ship docks her husband to be isn’t waiting for her, it's not a good sign and she wonders if she’s been stood up? Eventually Douglas arrives at his townhouse, they marry, after the wedding he’s very grumpy, he doesn’t want to talk and Evie wonders if she's made a big mistake? For Jasmine’s sake she decided to stay, she’s a sweet girl; Evie hopes to get to know her husband better and work on their relationship. Evie meets Jasmine’s teacher Mary Helston, they become good friends and she’s one of the few English ladies who’s friendly and nice to her. But will her peaceful life in Penang change with the talk of another world war, Douglas thinks it’s a lot of fuss over nothing, he believes it’s too hard for the Japanese army to enter Malay by having to hack through the jungle and also Singapore is well defended by the British? I enjoyed reading The Pearl of Penang, I gave it four stars and I can’t wait to start reading the next book in the series.

  • A novel worth reading - well written.

    This novel exceeded my expectations. So many marriage of convenience plots are so predictable. This one definitely was not. Set in south east Asia just before WWII the beauty, ambience and people of the land are a major part of the story. The characters and plot are very well described, interesting and well developed.

    Thanks for your feedback!
