    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"
    "Master Story Teller"

    If you could sum up The Persimmon Tree in three words, what would they be?

    Compelling to the End


    What other book might you compare The Persimmon Tree to and why?

    You cant compare Bryce's work, why would you, he's a master story teller


    Have you listened to any of Humphrey Bower’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Humphrey Bower would have to be the best narrator I have ever listened to, his ability to style the difference voices throughout his performance, really does add value to this book


    If you could rename The Persimmon Tree, what would you call it?

    Madam Butterfly


    Any additional comments?

    I diid not know that it was the first book of 2. I actually read Finishing for the Stars first!
