Wracked with guilt over the tragic deaths of her husband and young son, Kate Cavanagh leaves 1939 Britain to start a new life in Burma, where she falls in love and marries teak plantation manager Jack Bellamy, a widower with two young children. The 1942 Japanese invasion destroys their idyllic life in Burma. With Jack away fighting the enemy, Kate must embark on a perilous 250-mile journey, on foot, with her children and their Indian ayah. They brave monsoon-sodden jungle, swamps and mountains along with half-a-million terrified, civilian refugees fleeing to the safety of India. Death from disease, exhaustion, and starvation surrounds them. Corpses litter the trail. Vowing not to lose another child in her care, Kate needs every ounce of courage and determination she can muster. Will it be enough to ensure their survival through some of the world’s most inhospitable terrain?


About The Author:    Pauline Hayton hails from the north east of England. She worked as a probation officer in her hometown of Middlesbrough before immigrating to the United States in 1991. She and her husband currently live in Naples, Florida with four abandoned cats who adopted them. She figures there must be a sign at the end of her drive that says two mugs live here.
