White Pine Spotlight: The Emperor of Any Place by Tim Wynne-Jones


The Emperor of Any Place by Tim Wynne Jones

  • Tim Wynne-Jones doing what he does best…  gripping the reader from start to finish with a fantastical story
  • Historical fiction – part mystery, part supernatural thriller
  • Set against the backdrop of the final months of the war in the Pacific
  • Two soldiers – one Japanese, one American – find themselves stranded on a remote and seemingly uninhabited island
  • A story about our shared common humanity and the ways in which the costs of war reverberate down through the generations
