Nice read situated in Malay pre, during and post WW2: The Planter's Wife by Ann Bennett

A middle aged woman who owns a rubber plantation and lives a solitary life after having lost much during the war, is visited by a young one who thinks she is her niece. 

 She hands the young woman a journal written during her early years there pre, during and post WW2. 

Then the both of them go on a journey to solve the puzzle and to find out about the girl's mother. That takes them to Indonesia and a beach.

Comfy read that describes exotic places and violent pasts. 

4 stars out of 5
