(From the publisher):
1945. The Americian Air Force bombs Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Japan immediately surrenders, and years of abject suffering and humiliation end for a group of women prisoners in a Japanese Camp.
Life in their second camp, run by the evil Miss Hasan, has starved them of food, love and essential medicines. Yet their determination and courage sustain them through death and abuse at the hands of their guards - and they bravely make plans for the rumoured massacre that will attend the Last Tenko.
But lineration to the luxury of Raffles Hotel brings its own bitterness and disappointments - for after their horrifying experiances life can never be the same for these women: women like the sane and reasonable Marion, unable to abandon her role as leader and resume that of wife; like Beatrice Mason, whose eyesight has been ruined in captivity; like Dorothy, hounded for her affairs with the Japs; and Maggie whose hurriedly snatched pleasures have unfortunate results...
