Nevil Shute’s A Town Like Alice is an epic love story set all over the world from remote Scotland to war torn Malaysia to even more remote Australia.
Jean Paget, the protagonist, endures a life-changing experience in Malaysia during WW2 proving herself to have incredible strength, wits and charm that keeps her and many others alive.
While living as a prisoner of war, Jean meets an Australian soldier who is a brightness in her otherwise traumatic lifestyle. The second half of the novel shows Paget growing into a shrewd, savvy and successful young woman.
Shute writes Paget’s story in a series of letters between her and her lawyer, the sweet and dedicated Noel Strachan. Set in the 1950s with flash backs to the war, A Town Like Alice is a wonderful tale with a nostalgic style of story telling that keeps you hooked from start to finish ❤️📚 @vintagebooks
