9780143007005: The Persimmon Tree

Set among the Pacific islands and in the Indian Ocean, The Persimmon Tree tells the very personal and often romantic stories of men and women caught up in larger events - in this case starting with the Japanese invasion of Java and the Dutch exodus of the region. The story spans from 1942 and the fall of Singapore and the American landings at Guadalcanal to the ongoing fight against the Japanese for supremacy in the region. The story follows the fortunes of a colourful cast of characters, in particular young Nicholas Duncan ('the butterfly collector') and his sweetheart, the Eurasian/Dutch girl, Anna Van Heerden. Following Nicholas and Anna through dangerous and exciting times, the story concludes some fifty years later, when the dynamics of the Pacific region have changed forever.

Book Description Penguin Aus., 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. The persimmon tree is a symbol of life, a heartwood that will outlast everything man can make? It is 1942 in the Dutch East Indies, and Nick Duncan is a young Australian butterfly collector in search of a single exotic butterfly. With invading Japanese forces coming closer by the day, Nick falls in love with the intoxicating Anna van Heerden. Their time together is brief, as both are forced into separate, dangerous escapes. They plan to reunite and marry in Australia but it is several years before their paths cross again, scarred forever by the dark events of a long, cruel war. In The Persimmon Tree, Bryce Courtenay gives us a story of love and friendship set against the dramatic backdrop of the Pacific during the Second World War. 'The Persimmon Tree is a sprawling wartime romance ? You won't be disappointed by the generosity of his imagination.' The Age 'You can't keep a good story down when it's flowing from the pen of Bryce Courtenay.' Sunday Times [Url removed]. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # MM-40020233
