The Locket

Anna Hendry

Emma Thorpe was born in the Cotswolds and raised by her grandparents. She believed she was an orphan... but her mother's old locket, a faded memory, and a mysterious bank account lead Emma to the colourful, exotic world of Singapore in search of answers to her past.
She loses her heart to a charming British Army captain, James Barrington, and they search together... but as their love deepens, James must report for duty on the Malay/Thai border.
As Emma prepares to return home, she is confronted with troubling rumours about him. Confused and heartbroken, she departs, her life in tatters.
A stunned and disbelieving James, meanwhile, receives an unexpected visit from the military police. Arrested and returned to Singapore to face court martial, his situation assumes nightmare proportions. His friends rally in support, but how can he prove his innocence and convince Emma to return to him?

Anna was born into a military family, in Wellington, New Zealand. Her childhood saw her traverse not only the length and breadth of New Zealand but also many other interesting parts of the world. A small Australian fishing village, exotic Singapore and Malaya and swinging London.
A love of language, reading, writing and acting, led Anna to a thirty-year career in radio as a creative writer and voice-over artist.
While taking a sabbatical from radio to pen her first novel, The Locket, Anna was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis which saw her world turn upside down.
Now confined to a wheelchair, she believes this unwelcome experience, which has done much to expand her heart, soul, and mind, will stand her in good stead as she continues to create engaging tales of life and love.
