Myanmar Love Story Meets Post-War Britain Family Saga
If you are a fan of historical romance novels and war fiction, then this new British novel is for you. Eugene is a love story which spans decades and thousands of miles, separating star-crossed lovers at a tumultuous time in world history.
Can You Really Be Sure You Truly Know Someone?
The Far East was a forbidden, unsavoury place to be, if local opinion was to be believed. Eugene discovered it to be quite the opposite, and found himself falling deeply in love for the first time with the beautiful Chit. In this Myanmar love story, set thousands of miles apart, will Eugene ever come to terms with losing his lost love?
Eugene is a poignant look into the life of a man haunted by a lost love. Taking place shortly after the second world war, young Eugene, a deeply traumatised RAF conscript, returns to his childhood home. Eugene moves through post-war British life enjoying great success, but is still haunted by his lost love, a Burmese nurse called Chit.
A Standout Historical Fiction Novel
One of the best historical fiction novels of recent times, this Burmese love story will have readers hooked from the first page right through to the last. Black market trading, business coercion and corruption are rife – with murderous consequences. Love is gained and lost. There is happiness and heartache, but above all: regret.
This is more than a Myanmar love story – it’s a first-hand account of the seismic change in society in post-war Britain.
The author deals with themes everyone is familiar within a family saga: redemption, suicide, greed and wealth, taking the reader on a journey of self-discovery and reflection with Eugene.
