A New York Times Bestselling Author

Inspired by a notorious incident in New South Wales in 1944‚ this beautifully rendered novel from the author of Schindler’s List and The Daughters of Mars explores events at a World War II prison camp where Japanese prisoners resolve to take drastic action to wipe away their shame. This profoundly gripping and thoughtprovoking novel once again shows Keneally as a master at exploring ordinary lives caught up in extraordinary events.


Customer Reviews

"[Keneally] gives vivid human faces to the victims and the perpetrators of war. He weaves his magic and the reader falls under his spell."
