From the cover:

"In the heat and bustle of 1950's Hong Kong, newlywed Claire Pendleton is changing from an uptight English wallflower to a beautiful, graceful bloom. Then she meets Will, driver to wealthy Chinese couple the Chens when she takes the job of piano teacher to their daughter. His enigmatic presence enthralls and excites her.

A decade earlier, with war looming, Eurasian beauty Trudy Liang casts her own spell of fascination. A social butterfly, she is a thing of mystery -- and intrigue. She knows everyone worth knowing in Hong Kong - Chinese and foreign, good and bad, rich and poor. Including a newly arrived young Englishman - the magnetic Will Truesdale . . . ."

Thoroughly enjoyed this book - it runs the range of emotions. I had heard some stories about the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, and found many of them in this book. Very well written - vivid.

Hope you enjoy!
