    The Persimmon Tree opens in Indonesia in 1942 on the cusp of Japanese invasion and the evacuation of Batavia (Jakarta) by the Dutch. Seventeen-year-old Nicholas Duncan is on holiday there, in pursuit of an exotic butterfly known as the Magpie Crow. It's an uncertain, dangerous time to be in Indonesia, and Nick's options of getting out are fast dwindling. Amidst the fear and chaos he falls in love with Anna, the beautiful daughter of a Dutch acquaintance, and she nicknames him 'Mr Butterfly'.

    Corinne says: "An excellent sequel"
    "Bryce Courtenay has yet to disappoint"

    Story

    I've now read three of Courtenay's novels and found them all extremely interesting Novels (Power of One and Brother Fish are the other two). I will most likely go through all of his novels. An added benefit is the fact that they are read (so far) by Humphrey Bower who I find to be one of the best. I often search for novels he narrates for that very reason.
