Joined for July Book Club by Author Mark Butterworth, to talk about his book THE PEARL RIVER (which has had rave reviews). We also caught up with my Co Host, Author/Columnist, Sylvia Kent (see below).
The Pearl River by Mark Butterworth
The role of the armed forces is becoming increasingly uncertain in the post-war world of 1949, and Flight Lieutenant Adam Devon is considering his future as a Spitfire pilot.
Daring and resourceful, his love of flying keeps him in the skies and from travelling home; when the opportunity for promotion presents itself in a shrinking airforce, Devon is pit against the wily Flight Lieutenant Fitzjohn, a man of unscrupulous practices and morals…
His mission in Hong Kong is a dangerous one, and when he meets a beautiful British girl, Hannah, he can feel himself falling for her… Devon and Hannah spend time touring the sights in Hong Kong and love ties them together. But what is the strange secret she carries that stands in the way of their relationship?
Devon’s principles and loyalty are put to the test, in a tale of love, war and intrigue.
The book is available at Waterstones, (signed copies) The Chicken & Frog Book Shop and on Mark’s website Home | Mark Butterworth (markbutterworthauthor.co.uk)
