A View From The Mountain

For fans of Jodi Picoult and Kate Morton, comes the extraordinary life of one young woman who defies social norms… and carves a better life for herself and other women.

1902. In tropical Malang, Indonesia, Anna’s family owns a coffee plantation. But despite their opulent lifestyle, shy, sensitive Anna has always felt like an outsider. Haunted by dreams of another life, she craves the acceptance of her mother and self-absorbed sister, Lily.

Facing discrimination for the colour of her skin, Anna wants to change the lives of Javanese girls through education. Despite the hurdles in her way, she pursues the life of a teacher.

But as the war looms, and her marriage turns deadly, Anna will need to draw upon her inner strength and bravery to not only survive; but to unearth the truth of her past.
