More exhilarated by the adventure of a lifetime than she ever was by her predictable fiancé, she is drawn to a mysterious soldier named Westry, and their friendship soon blossoms into hues as deep as the hibiscus flowers native to the island. Under the thatched roof of an abandoned beach bungalow, the two share a private world--until they witness a gruesome crime, Westry is suddenly redeployed, and their idyll vanishes into the winds of war. In a timeless tale of enduring passion, The Bungalow chronicles Anne's determination to discover the truth about the twin losses -- of life, and of love -- that have haunted her for seventy years. Sarah Jio has written a sweeping story of thwarted love, murder, and a long-lost painting.
