About the book
Kate Furnivall has enchanted readers with her breathtaking historical novels, including her New York Times bestselling debut, The Russian Concubine. Now Furnivall delivers another moving novel of love and sacrifice in The White Pearl. Furnivall takes readers on a journey across the globe and back in time to the Japanese invasion of Malaya in 1942 for a dramatic story of love, courage, honor and betrayal in the riotous days of World War II in Southeast Asia.
In The White Pearl, young Englishwoman Connie Hadley lives a pampered life as the wife of a prosperous rubber plantation owner. But Connie loathes the colonial way of life, and feels crippled with boredom and trapped in her loveless marriage. When the Japanese invasion sweeps Malaya, Connie, her family, and friends sail south aboard their yacht only to be captured by a pirate craft and its Malayan crew. Despite desperation and fear, in the tight confines of the boat, Connie finds something she has only ever imagined—a new kind of freedom and a new, very dangerous, exhilarating love.
