Ethel and Joan Go To Phuket

A non fiction book by

New, with much improved pictures, second edition.

What happens when author Colin Cotterill’s two mothers come to visit him in Phuket, Thailand?

Ethel and Joan, two English women, who take Thailand by storm. They have been married (at different times) to the same man. They became best friends.

Ethel and Joan were two elderly ladies, who when most people wish to stay at home and tend their garden, set off on the road to self-discovery and adventure in Southeast Asia. This is their story.

A gentle beauty unfolds as we enter their world laced with charm, humor and self-discovery. What son couldn’t adore a mother who talked with a bar girl and told her son, “It doesn’t what she does for a living. That’s just society that decides what’s proper and what’s not. It’s the person that counts.” Ethel and Joan aren’t with us anymore. This book is a testament to their humanity, love of life, and true-grit. They’re continuing their spiritual journey and souvenir shopping in another dimension. We promise one thing: this book and these two ladies will stay with you forever.

Written and illustrated by Colin Cotterill, the author of the Dr. Siri and Jimm Juree crime series. This book uses his love of storytelling and drawing to honor these two remarkable women.
