Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '09/Winter '10 Reading Group List
“This is a coming-of-age book set in one of the worst times and places to come of age -- Panang, an island off the Malay Peninsula, just before the start of WWII. Sixteen-year-old Philip Hutton is torn between destiny and duty, but how do you choose when duty to country, family, friends, and mentor conflict? This is a lyrical, thought-provoking novel filled with many layers of loss and love.”
-- Ann Carlson, Harborwalk Books, Georgetown, SC
