О товаре

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan

Collectors Library is a series of beautiful gift editions

of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collectors Library

are books to love and treasure. A heart-rending story of

strength in adversity, A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute is a

celebration of the overwhelming power of love. This

Macmillan Collectors Library edition features an afterword

by bestselling novelist, Jenny Colgan. Jean Paget, a young

English woman, is captured by the Japanese army in Malaya

during World War Two. She is forced on a brutal march across

the country with a group of women and children. During this

appalling ordeal she befriends Joe Harman, an Australian

soldier who risks his own life to help the women. A few

years later, and back in England, Jean receives an

unexpected and substantial inheritance. She decides to use

the money to repay the Malayan people who risked their lives

to help her and her fellow prisoners during the war so she

travels back to the village where they stayed. From there

she travels on to Australia in search of lost love. Cut off

in the Australian outback and thousands of miles from home,

Jean once again draws on her admirable determination and

entrepreneurial spirit when she sets out to build a thriving

community.
