Adventures, Romance and War in the Far East is a fascinating true story based on the diary and memoir of Iris Hay-Edie, an attractive and free-spirited Scottish girl who grew up in the glamorous French Riviera during the 1920's. Suffering under her strict mother, she ran away from home and never turned back. Iris leads us on an enchanted journey around the world to what were then remote outposts of waning European empires during the 1930's. Reaching Hong Kong, she falls in love, but soon after, the Japanese invade China, bombing her new home with her and her young family inside it. Opting to escape prison camp, they flee across China, over the "Hump" of the Himalayas, to India and Kashmir beyond. Her outgoing and positive personality captivates the reader, and her old photos and postcards add an extra dimension of interest to this historical account of her extraordinary life as a rebellious, independent woman in a bygone era of colonial powers and decadence, of the brutal war in the Pacific, and of the growth of the Far East into the powerhouse that Asia is today.
