Although other books have featured Jack and Elizabeth Ennis, this is the first complete account of their story - from meeting in up-country Malaya (the rain forest, the orchids) - to their marriage in Singapore just days before it fell to the Japanese, and then through the long separation of internment. Published here for the first time, Jack's diaries record the daily struggles against disease, injuries and malnutrition and also the support and camaraderie of friends. enjoyment of concerts, lectures, and sports, Ever observant, he records details of wildlife. The inspiration for the 'Changi Quilts', the story of the Girl Guide quilt (now in the Imperial War Museum) is told in words by Elizabeth, written after the war. Elizabeth's former employer, Robert Heatlie Scott, distinguished Far East diplomat, was also POW in Changi, much of the time in solitary confinement or under interrogation by the Japanese. The individual experiences of these three persons are dramatic enough - together they combine in an amazing story of courage, love and life-long friendship
