A MULTITUDE OF SINS
Elizabeth has always been forced to give way to the men in her life. First her father, a lonely, selfish widower who needs her as his companion, then Adam, her middle-aged husband, who carries her off to the brittle world of Hong Kong society, ignoring the burning musical talent she constantly has to repress. In Hong Kong she meets Raefe Elliot, a womaniser and soldier of fortune who repeatedly rocks Hong Kong with his scandals. Between the two of them wild passion explodes into the most shocking scandal of all. As the Japanese prepare to invade Hong Kong Elizabeth at last finds happiness – in her lover, and in her progress as a musician. It is happiness that comes to a cataclysmic end as Hong Kong falls to the Japanese and she and Raefe become fugitives in a war-torn world.

‘A spellbinding love story, with all the passion and glory you could wish for. Don’t expect to get other things done; just open a bottle of wine, grab a hankie (or two) read and enjoy.’
‘Takes off passionately, unstoppably. Turbulent stuff.’
‘Never were heroes more dashing, husbands more devoted, music more exhilarating and bravado more gallant than in this high pitched romance… A rattling good read.’
