An Undesirable Marriage by Meriel Brooke
Originally published as 'An Impossible Marriage' - this is a 2nd and revised edition.
"Can I whet your appetite?" With those words Ruth approaches Sam. Will he resist this offer from a glamorous stranger and will he taste his first White Lady?
It's 1920 on a cruise ship bound for Singapore. Skirts and hairstyles are short and it's life at close quarters.
Sam is going to seek a new life as a rubber planter in Malaya, hoping that life in the colonies will offer escape from his nightmare memories of WW1.
This story of lives and loves spans the time from before the first World War, through the intervening years to World War II and afterwards, and takes place in England, Malaya and Australia.
Can love and courage confound problems and overcome the obstacles of an undesirable marriage?
