Relentless Echoes

Paul Lambert

Love and war meet in the last outposts and privilege of colonial Africa in Paul Lambert's debut novel.


Sexually abused and exploited during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore, can a young Englishwoman ever be liberated from an ordeal of which she can tell nobody?


Can any woman's heart find a haven when her body has been so abused? Or must Cecelia's war, like her loneliness, last a lifetime?


Can Cecelia settle for security and a quiet life with her colonial family in Africa, where the War has been little more than a distant storm cloud? Or will she find herself drawn into romantic adventures against her better judgement, daring to trust men again?


Relentless Echoes pulls the reader through times and troubles, at once exotic and familiar, feeling the pulse of Africa on the cusp of change whilst listening to the heart of a woman in and out of love.
