From the cover: “In 1942, young Canadian seaman Harry Winslow has just arrived in Singapore after the bombing of his ship, the Empress of Asia. Harry meets and falls madly in love with a vivacious young Englishwoman named Lily. After a hasty marriage, they are separated during the confusion of an air raid. Harry begins a desperate search for Lily across the Dutch East Indies, enduring hunger, illness, and unimaginable cruelty before finally being reunited. Fifty years later after the wartime events that changed his life forever, Harry travels to Thailand to begin the final adventure of his life — to retrace the journey of his Empress of Asia and to uncover the mystery that lies at the heart of the love of his life.”
