A sweeping World War II saga of thwarted love, murder,
and a long-lost painting.
In the summer of 1942, twenty-one-year-old Anne Calloway, newly
engaged, sets off to serve in the Army Nurse Corps on the Pacific
island of Bora-Bora. More exhilarated by the adventure of a
lifetime than she ever was by her predictable fiancé, she is drawn
to a mysterious soldier named Westry, and their friendship soon
blossoms into hues as deep as the hibiscus flowers native to the
island. Under the thatched roof of an abandoned beach bungalow, the
two share a private world-until they witness a gruesome crime,
Westry is suddenly redeployed, and the idyll vanishes into the
winds of war.
A timeless story of enduring passion from the author of
Blackberry Winter and The Violets of March,
The Bungalow chronicles Anne''s determination to discover
the truth about the twin losses-of life, and of love-that have
haunted her for seventy years.
