A brilliantly exotic saga set in post-war Hong Kong and Korea, where Dr Rowena Rossiter longs to follow her heart, and her love, but the shadows of a violent past threaten to engulf her.
Hong Kong, 1950: Rowena's daughter, conceived during the horrors of the Japanese invasion, is safely at boarding school. Her great love, Connor O'Connor, is by her side. But just as they begin planning a new life together, bad news comes. A female doctor is urgently needed in Seoul. The powers that be would like Rowena to go. At first she plans to refuse - until rumours begin to swirl that the sinister, beautiful man who held her captive during the war, may still be alive and looking for her. Korea on the brink of war seems safer by comparison. Except, that of course, it isn't.
