`A deeply moving read - I loved it' Dinah Jefferies, bestselling author of THE TEA PLANTER'S WIFE

As a child in the Second World War, Klara was interned in a Japanese prison camp on Java during the occupation. Her childhood years unfold in an extraordinary and harrowing story of survival, a story that few people have heard.

Years later, Jenni is sent to write Klara's story. But as Jenni and Klara begin to get to know each other, Jenni begins to do much more than uncover a lost girlhood in a neglected part of Second World War history. She is forced to examine her own devastating memories, too. Perhaps, finally, the two women will be able to lay the ghosts of their pasts to rest...

Gripping, poignant and beautifully researched, Ghostwritten is a story of survival and love, of memory and hope.
