The persimmon tree is a symbol of life, a heartwood that will outlast everything man can make...... It is 1942 in the Dutch East Indies, and Nick Duncan is a young Australian butterfly collector in search of a single exotic butterfly. With invading Japanese forces coming closer by the day, Nick falls in love with the intoxicating Anna van Heerden. Their time together is brief, as both are forced into separate, dangerous escapes. They plan to reunite and marry in Australia but it is several years before their paths cross again, scarred forever by the dark events of a long, cruel war. In The Persimmon Tree, Bryce Courtenay gives us a story of love and friendship set against the dramatic backdrop of the Pacific during the Second World War. 'The Persimmon Tree is a sprawling wartime romance ...... You won't be disappointed by the generosity of his imagination.' The Age 'You can't keep a good story down when it's flowing from the pen of Bryce Courtenay.' Sunday Times
