With the island under siege, amidst the illusion of resistance by the Empire’s defenders, Richard and Greda confront a wretched paradigm amongst the frenetic crush to board the last ship casting off from the doomed colony.
Deeply With The Sun In Our Eyes is a gripping literary thriller, combining an intriguing labyrinth of contours and charismatic people. Destiny and abiding love are enmeshed with a tumult of treachery and honour in the shadow of the fall of Singapore, the greatest catastrophe of World War II.
