Abstract:

Ethie Coulter was born after her father Howard returned from the war in 1945. When his wife dies in bizarre circumstances, Howard must take on the burden of looking after eleven-year-old Ethie and her two older brothers. Howard was one of hundreds of Canadian soldiers sent to the Far East following the attack on Pearl Harbour. Surviving the fierce battle for Hong Kong, he became a POW. Yet Howard carries more than the physical and mental scars inflicted by his captors. Something happened in Hong Kong, a secret that he has carried for nearly two decades. Ethie, inquisitive and fearless, will be the one to work her way towards the truth and help her father come to terms with the past.
