Peggy Parker's life changed forever when she followed Stanley, her sailor husband, to China. Successful at running her hairdressing salon in Derby, England, Peggy was the eldest child of a large Catholic family. She was expected to support her frail mother and shell-shocked father. But her hopes for Stanley's career, and his need for her at his side, seemed a greater duty...

Shanghai, ‘the Paris of the East' soon seduced Peggy. At first, she struggled to discard her working-class roots, but Stan encouraged her to embrace her new, socially uplifting life in the glittering ballrooms of the almost mythical city.

After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor a year after the birth of her son, Jonny, the conquerors stormed into Shanghai. Stan was forced to train the invaders in handling foreign shipping. One day he failed to return to his wife and child. A week later, Peggy's home was invaded. She and her son were swept off to a Japanese concentration camp. Peggy's life was shattered. Where was Stan? Had she lost her family forever?
