The Lovers' Room

(2007)
A novel by

 
The Lovers' Room was first published as Momoko.

'Not a day has passed when I haven't craved, deeply craved...your forgiveness.'

As the Allied Forces occupy Japan at the end of World War II, shy Australian Allen "Spin" Bowler, an interpreter in the British Army, falls deeply in love with Momoko, a western-educated young woman whose calmness and dignity veils the weariness and numbness of defeat. Daughter of a diplomat recalled back from Knightsbridge in London to Tokyo, she finds Spin to be different from the brashness and moral superiority of the rest of the 'conquerors'.

Their intense love affair develops and under her spell, Spin gradually sheds his shy bookish self and in the quiet sanctuary of Momoko's room, their love transcends the cultural boundaries that divide them. However, the betrayal that follows Spin's jealousy and suspicions of Momoko's intentions lead to devastating consequences, forever changing the course of both their lives.

'Now, you join the rest.'

A powerful and heart-breaking story of love found and lost, or trust and betrayal, passion and secrets, The Lovers' Room is nothing short of unforgettable! Carroll's deftness of understanding the different cultural behavior especially under such extreme diversities - the East and the West, of the defeated and the conquerors, never fails to move the reader to tears.
