Concerto

(1993)
A novel by

 
1941.

The British colony of Hong Kong thinks it is immune from the chaos engulfing the rest of the world.

Amid so much suffering, the talented pianist Sarah Channing, fresh from war-ravaged England, is disgusted by the shallow concerns of her father's social set.

Rod Durman, an Australian doctor trapped in a toxic marriage, wants only to advance his career and help his patients, whoever they may be.

Alex Tennant is a notorious playboy, happy to fritter away his youth in the pursuit of pleasure ... until he meets the passionate and principled Sarah Channing.

All three lives become irreversibly intertwined.

But when the Japanese army takes Hong Kong by surprise all personal happiness must be put aside in order to survive.

Elizabeth Darrell's richly evocative tale of love and the realities of war sweeps from the fall of Hong Kong to the London Blitz and the D-Day landings. What kind of love can survive the chaos and anguish of war?

Praise for Elizabeth Darrell:

'A wonderful story, compellingly told...the authenticity - both emotional and historical - really shines through' - Sarah Harrison
