Description du produit

Revue de presse

This is a book that can be enjoyed on many different levels. On the one hand it can be read simply as the beautifully written story of two decades of the life of an individual we come to like and care for as she takes the chances that fate offers her to pursue her dreams, and finds that some of them can become nightmares. On another level it can be seen as a story of the enduring power of friendship and, especially, of love, in the face of unimaginable adversity. --Undiscovered Scotland

Présentation de l'éditeur

An epic story of love, hope and survival from Scotland to Shanghai. When six-year-old Lizzie Flint's father, Peter, is killed in the trenches of the First World War, she knows life will never be the same again. And as Lizzie's mother Beth, who refuses to believe that Peter is dead, becomes isolated and embittered, she grows up taking care of her mother - at the cost of her own dreams of adventure. After her mother passes away, Lizzie finally tastes freedom when she travels to Hong Kong to be a teacher. There she falls in love not only with the country itself - the exotic Dragon Land - but with Jonas O'Neill, an author. Jonas and Lizzie marry and move to Shanghai, where they have a son. But as the Japanese army advances towards China, the family finds itself separated by the turmoil of war. In the midst of conflict in a foreign land, can Lizzie win her own battles, get herself to safety and reunite her family?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dragon Land by Maureen Reynolds 25 novembre 2014
Par Rosemary Morris - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The reader of this satisfying novel first meets 6 year-old Lizzie Flint after her father is killed in the First World War. Lizzie and her grandmother, with whom Lizzie and her mother live, accept that he is dead, but her mother cannot. Her mother's denial casts a shadow over Lizzie's life from her childhood onwards.

Maureen Reynolds writes about deep-felt sorrow that drains Lizzie's mother, but Dragon Land is not depressing. I enjoyed reading about the ups and downs, twists and turns in Lizzie's life. For example when her Aunt visits them from overseas and arranges a holiday: "Mum let me sit by the window" of the train " and I was engrossed by all the passing scenery. The sun was setting and long shadows began to appear as we swept past houses and fields until I finally got my first glimpse of the river.

"White Sands Hotel was just as the brochure had described, a white painted two-storey building set in a large gardent that overlooked the sea."

Seen through a child's eyes such descriptions are interesting, as well as Lizzie's ambition to travel, and so she will one day. After her grandmother's and mother's death a host of new experiences and colourful people await her in Dragon Land.

Lizzie falls in love with Hong Kong and with author, Jonas O'Neil who she marries and lives with in Shanghai. However, tragedy awaits when the Japanese army advances. Almost on the edge of my seat, hoping everything would turn out well for Lizzie, I read on to the satisfying conclusion.
