I have just finished my latest book club book recommended by my friend Diane - The Piano Teacher by Janice Y.K. Lee.
The book is set in 2 time periods, wartime and post war Hong Hong and is a compelling mix of love, war and betrayal. Claire, the piano teacher of the title, is newly arrived in Hong Hong in 1952 with her husband Martin and gets involved with the ex pat community, some of whom survived the wartime occupation by the Japanese. She meets Will, who has had a love affair with an intriging Eurasian woman Trudy, before and during the occupation. As the book evolves, Claire finds out more about Will's background and the tragic events which took place during the occupation.
I found the book exceptionally easy reading but the subject is moving and traumatic at times.
Definitely worth a read.
