Mailbox Monday #100


This week I received 1 book in the mail which I am excited to read. I received The White Pearl by Kate Furnivall from Penguin Books.  I have not yet had the chance to read any of her other books, but I have been dying too - such interesting choices of subjects.  This one too caught my eye because of the setting - Malaya.  Here is the book blurb:
Malaya, 1941. As the glamorous wife of a plantation owner, Connie Hadley’s life appears pampered and comfortable. But she is hiding devastating secrets that could destroy her marriage.

Life is changed for ever on the day of the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor. As Japanese Zero aircraft attack the town of Palur, Connie takes the decision to flee to Singapore on the family’s boat, The White Pearl. 
She sails with her husband and son, three friends and the enigmatic boat dealer Fitzpayne, who is the only one who can navigate the islands of the South China Sea. In desperation, short of food and constantly in danger, fear strips away good manners; tensions arise on the yacht and anger causes deadly divisions between friends…

Did you receive any books this week?

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of February it is hosted by Metroreader.

    1. I'm kinda glad I don't have an e-reader, because I know my ARC requesting would get WAY out of hand. I mean, it does in hardcopy so I know e-copy would be so much worse. Happy reading!

  3. I've been meaning to read one of Kate Furnivall's books for ages...I have three of them on my shelf so I think it's time I tried one.

    I hope you enjoy The White Pearl.
