Dinah Jefferies was born in Malaysia and moved to England at the age of nine. She has worked in education, lived in a commune and exhibited work as an artist.

ABOUT THE BOOK

1952, French Indochina. Since her mother’s death, eighteen-year-old half-French, half-Vietnamese Nicole has been living in the shadow of her beautiful older sister, Sylvie. When Sylvie is handed control of the family silk business, Nicole is given an abandoned silk shop in the Vietnamese quarter of Hanoi. But the area is teeming with militant rebels who want to end French rule. For the first time, Nicole is awakened to the corruption of colonial rule – and her own family’s involvement shocks her to the core…

Tran, a notorious Vietnamese insurgent, seems to offer the perfect escape from her troubles, while Mark, a charming American trader, is the man she’s always dreamed of. But who can she trust in this world where no one is what they seem?

I don't know if this is a general comment form or not. However, as to the confusion amongst many people, not only us silversurfers, could you not do a piece on the pros and antis of in our out of the EU~- as related to the effect it will have on us and our families as individuals rather than just the country. Thank you Karen (Nome) Steele

Hello Karen ... thank you for your comment. We have a Speakers Corner feature o the EU .. here is the link: https://www.silversurfers.com/speakers-corner/britain-stay-eu/ It would be great if you could add this comment there for all our community to see. I think everyone agrees with your suggestion. I think the main problem is that no one in Government seems to be able to put the pros and cons together for us to evaluate and make an informed decision. We too are eagerly awaiting this document. Best wishes Sally
