No Long Goodbyes

Wracked with guilt over the tragic deaths of her husband and young son, Kate Cavanagh leaves 1939 Britain to start a new life in Burma, where she falls in love and marries teak plantation manager Jack Bellamy, a widower with two young children. The 1942 Japanese invasion destroys their idyllic life in Burma. With Jack away fighting the enemy, Kate must embark on a perilous 250-mile journey, on foot, with her children and their Indian ayah. They brave monsoon-sodden jungle, swamps and mountains along with half-a-million terrified, civilian refugees fleeing to the safety of India. Death from disease, exhaustion, and starvation surrounds them. Corpses litter the trail. Vowing not to lose another child in her care, Kate needs every ounce of courage and determination she can muster. Will it be enough to ensure their survival through some of the world’s most inhospitable terrain?
