    After the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor it’s the start of the war in the pacific, they easily take Malay and they have their sights set on Singapore. Mary Helston flees Penang with her mother Janet, they arrive in Singapore praying they would be safe and surely the Japanese army would be stopped. The British army assumed if the Japanese attacked Singapore it would be via the sea and of course it wasn’t the case. Two months later Mary and her mother have to flee on the last boat to leave Singapore After the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor it’s the start of the war in the pacific, they easily take Malay and they have their sights set on Singapore. Mary Helston flees Penang with her mother Janet, they arrive in Singapore praying they would be safe and surely the Japanese army would be stopped. The British army assumed if the Japanese attacked Singapore it would be via the sea and of course it wasn’t the case. Two months later Mary and her mother have to flee on the last boat to leave Singapore, but the Japanese are relentless and the boat is quickly over taken. This is the beginning of Mary’s time as a prisoner of the Japanese, for over three years she and her fellow captives mainly women and children are moved countless times. They are forced to march from camp to camp, starved, they receive no medical supplies, and many become sick with tropical diseases and all are suffering from malnutrition. They find strength to carry on despite the cruel treatment by the Japanese and the women are completely shut off from the outside world. Prisoner from Penang is a sequel to The Pearl of Penang, both Mary Helston and Veronica Leighton are familiar characters from the first book, we read about their awful experiences as captives of the Japanese, it’s worse than anyone could imagine and how Veronica redeems herself to Mary and the other women in the camp. I can’t wait to read third book in the series The Painter in Penang. I highly recommend both books and I gave Prisoner from Penang five stars and I read it in a day. https://karrenreadsbooks.blogspot.com/

    My heart! This story was so powerful, it took me a few days to gather my thoughts and write a review that would fully explain what I felt. Through Mary’s diary, I learned about the Japanese invasion of Singapore and the brutalities that were inflicted on the civilian population right after. What Mary, a young teacher who had just lost her fiancé to war, had to go through at the hands of her ruthless captors is truly difficult to describe.

Through Mary’s diary, I learned about the Japanese invasion of Singapore and the brutalities that were inflicted on the civilian population right after. What Mary, a young teacher who had just lost her fiancé to war, had to go through at the hands of her ruthless captors is truly difficult to describe. Yet, her resilience and will to survive - if not for herself but for her mother or her young charge - are truly admirable. Unbearable living conditions, miserable rations, lack of clean water and medicaments turned the prisoners’ lives into hell on earth, but the worst was yet to come when one of the guards began showing interest in Mary. Another character that was wonderfully complex was Veronica. Just like Mary, I watched her transform into a completely different person, who soon became not only a true pillar for the harassed women but a true hero, who was ready to sacrifice herself for their sake. The setting was brilliantly described and made me feel like I was actually there, which made the experience even more chilling. And yet, hope shines even through the darkest of times; I think it’s exactly that hope that made “Prisoners from Penang” such a powerful read for me. This is my first story by Clare Flynn but it definitely won’t be the last. Highly recommended to all historical fiction lovers!

    Brilliantly written and very moving . Following the evacuation of Singapore during World War II, Mary, her mother and so many other women end up in Japanese war camps. The majority of this book is written as a memoir of Mary's experiences.

On a personal note, my father served in Penang and Singapore during World War II, and I had always wondered why he never talked about it; now I understand. Although this book can be disturbing in parts, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it.

    Excellent writing and it reads like it was first hand experience by the author when in fact it was a compilation of experiences from others. The book that will always remain at the top of my list is the book upon which the movie paradise road was based. This was a true accounting of how horrible it was to be a prisoner of war and that it was difficult to assimilate back into society afterwards.

    After devouring The Pearl of Penang, I read Prisoner from Penang almost immediately, and found it equally as compelling. I want to say ‘entertaining’ but due to the subject matter, one can’t be really entertained by such hardship and heartache. However, it is far from a depressing read.

However, the British are no match for the attacking Japanese and after being captured at sea, Mary and her mother are imprisoned on the Sumatran islands. The author’s skill at drawing life-life characters makes us sympathetic to Mary’s, and the other women’s plights: the lack of hygiene, starvation, disease and hard work they must endure. We can readily imagine the unbelievable cruelty the prisoners suffered at the hands of the Japansese. However, as I said, even as parts of this story might move you to tears, it’s not a depressing read. An excellent sequel to The Pearl of Penang, I would highly recommend Prisoner from Penang.

    An absolutely beautiful story written with so much compassion for the plight of the men and women and the trials they went through during the war when Japan invaded the beautiful islands around Singapore, Penang, and the Malaysia area. We met School teacher Mary in the previous book Pearl of Penang, this book continues from it, from where all white people were evacuated from Penang. The women with children were immediately put on ships to Australia as soon as they reached Singapore. Mary and her An absolutely beautiful story written with so much compassion for the plight of the men and women and the trials they went through during the war when Japan invaded the beautiful islands around Singapore, Penang, and the Malaysia area. We met School teacher Mary in the previous book Pearl of Penang, this book continues from it, from where all white people were evacuated from Penang. The women with children were immediately put on ships to Australia as soon as they reached Singapore. Mary and her mother were lucky to be met at the train station by the woman Mary hated most in the world, non other than Veronica. The woman who had an affair with her first fiancee and who then tried to steal her new fiancee, even though she is a married woman. We get to see a whole other side to Veronica in this book as we also find out why she is the way she is. When Mary and her mother end up in a concentration camp we get a first hand account of what life is like for the poor souls that ended up there. This story will touch your heart in ways you may never have dreamed you could become so in touch with the people. We also get to see what it is like for people that survive the camps. Ms. Flynn has written this book after much research has been done and you can tell this by the depth of the story. I appreciate learning more about history but the suffering that one group can do to another shocks me. I am so thankful that I live in a country that is free and it makes me appreciate so much more the bravery of the men and women that put their lives on the line every day for us. Please don't think this story is all sadness there is more than just the time in the camps. There is the strength of the the human spirit to build a new life. This is Mary's story and it also brings Evie back for a visit and other friends from Mary's past. I loved how it ended and I'm looking forward to reading more about these ladies and the continuing life in Penang. I received a free download of this book and I am thrilled to be able to leave my own honest opinion of this book.

    Sequel to Pearl of Penanag Mary Helston is a young woman when World War II overspills into Singapore and the women and children are forced to evacuate. As we hear of the recent death of her fiance – a pilot shot down by the Japanese – we also learn that Mary's first fiance had committed suicide following an affair with Veronica Langton, one of the circle of sophisticated ladies that comprise Society in Singapore.

Mary and her mother are part of a crowded ship that is to take them to safety, but it is attacked by the Japanese navy and the captain surrenders. From there, the women are taken to a makeshift camp and their nightmares begin. The book is divided into two parts. The first of these comprises Mary's memoirs written after the war and is in the past tense. It tells of the conditions, sufferings, diseases, maltreatment, torture and, sadly, death amongst the prisoners. It is not written in graphic detail, but it doesn't need to be for the author puts over all these inhumanities with such a skilful pen that we don't have to imagine how horrific it must have been for the real women who endured those terrible times. I would have liked to see a little more dialogue as Ms Flynn handles those very well, especially a particularly poignant scene between Mary and Veronica – bitter enemies but each earning the respect of the other. However, I can see that as a purported memoir 'Tell' rather than 'Show' is probably more appropriate. Part Two is written in the present tense as Mary, back in Singapore after the war's end, struggles with her life, her memories and a future that she views as pointless. But a chance meeting changes all that which, without wishing to get into the realm of spoilers, the reader will find very emotional. If you remember and watched the TV series Tenko, then you will thoroughly enjoy this novel as I did Originally Reviewed for Discovering Diamonds

This is a heartwarming and at times heart breaking novel about the women’s battle for survival. I was hooked from page one and found the storyline gripping. The author really bought the period and the setting of the novel to life. The detailed descriptions along with the wonderful narrative made this an enjoyable and engaging read. Book two in a series, this can also be read as a standalone story. A definite five star read.

    No. 2 in the series! Another page-turner! Although the books stand alone, this is a series of 3. Told by a friend of the Barrington 's, she takes up the story from their separation in Singapore. Her ship is captured by the Japanese & they are marched to 4 different camps in Malaya. The Japanese had their own codes for treatment of prisoners, and the survivors liberated by the Allies, are skeletons - that is, those whom hadn't been shot, tortured or died of malaria & dengue fever.

Leaders materialise, organisers come forth, the compassionate care for the sick and others just get on and do....

    I couldn’t put this book down; it’s an engaging and evocative novel portraying a difficult subject: the terrible treatment of prisoners taken by the Japanese in WWII. The use of a memoir style made it very personal, and the fact that parts of it are so painful to read is a testament to Clare Flynn’s wonderful writing. As always, the descriptions are rich in colour and the characters are well-drawn, making you anxious for their happy ever after ending.

    Historical fiction Beautifully written! A important story told in a way that transports you to the war and makes you live it yourself. I have always been fascinated by WWII and learning more about the people that lived through that era. They were all heroes in my book. They have inspired me. Even the fictional characters like in this book because they are based on composites of real people. Keep the books coming Claire Flynn!! Each one just gets better.

    I loved the first book Pearl of Penang but found this sequel boring. Considering the whole focus was on such an horrific subject as war internment camps I thought it totally lacked emotion and was very dry - it was like reading a history documentary rather than fiction. None of the characters seemed to come to life and it was just a factual diary of what happened next. I have the next book Painter of Penang to read and hope that will prove to be a better read.

    Prisoner from Penang picks up where The Pearl of Penang ends but switches voice to Mary Helston, the teacher who befriends Evie Fraser. The majority of the first half of the book is written in the style of a memoir and describes rather than allows the characters to act in the plot. After the memoir about Mary's treatment by the Japanese during the war, the books ends with a predictable and clichéd plot.

    By far her best work yet. Reading this book took me back to family remembrances of their time (before and during) in Japanese POW camps in the Far East. Clare captured this period, the characters and experiences vibrantly in her book. She made it come alive creating a page-turner for the reader. I definitely recommend this as a must read.

    Wow..... What a story, I was unable to put the book down once I started reading it. In my opinion this book is more dynamic than the first in the series and that was a good read. I went through every emotion under the sun including having a quiet weep, this book has had quite an affect on me and will stay in my mind for a long time.

    For anyone who has visited Penang, or would like to, this trilogy is a must read. The descriptions of life in the Japanese POW camps in this the second in the series are harrowing. The historical aspects of the series from the 1930s to the post war Emergency plus the romantic interludes make this a fascinating read.

    This was quite a confronting story to read, but very well written. The plight of the men and women taken as prisoners of war by the Japanese in Singapore is one that needs to be told. This made Neville Shute's 'A Town Like Alice' look pretty tame by comparison. I found it hard to put down. This was quite a confronting story to read, but very well written.
