One of the best novels I've read - a love story over time and an historical heart-breaking inside view of the torture of the Australian prisoners building the infamous Burma Line. The extra kick comes near the end where we follow the hero back to Australia BUT also the camp commander and the brutal Korean 'ganger' back to their post-war lives , such as they are ! Great story, insightful humanity, excellent writing - it's a WOW
