Hong Kong, 1941...

To the residents and defence forces of the Crown Colony of Hong Kong, the war in Europe remains remote. Even the massive build-up of Japanese forces on the Chinese border cannot dent their carefree optimism.

Yet one man suspects the truth. Lieutenant-Commander Esmond Brooke, captain of HMS Serpent and a veteran of the cruel Atlantic, sees all too clearly the folly and incompetence of Hong Kong's colonial administration. To Brooke, attack by Japan seems inevitable. But, in war, there will always be some who attempt the impossible, even in the face of death.

This is the story of one ship and her company who refuse to accept the anguish of defeat and surrender to a merciless enemy.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 2/11/2014

    " A good "wrap up" ending to the Baxter family story, but Karen tells us that we my see more of them as background characters in future stories -no surprise there! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/30/2014

    " The latest in the Baxter soap opera saga. John Baxter gets remarried, Luke and Regan manage not to separate, and Ashley and Katy have baby girls. All of this is in the context of family Christian drama. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darcie | 1/28/2014

    " Classic Karen Kingsbury tearjerker...loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheri Bauer | 1/26/2014

    " Sure hate to see this series (Baxter family) end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kati | 1/25/2014

    " Loved this last book in the 3rd Baxter series. I would like Kingsbury to write a novel off shooting from this about some of the other characters. I would esp. like to know what happens/becomes of Bailey and Cody's relationship -- I think there's a great love story there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess219 | 1/24/2014

    " very heartwarming. restores much faith and gives reasons of hope. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/16/2014

    " This series was awesome but by the end of 3 series I felt like I knew everything about the family and it was time for it to end.. Although I really could not put any book down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/13/2014

    " This is book 14 about the Baxter Family. Wonderful!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jayne | 12/26/2013

    " Great book supporting family values and the power of God's love. Could curl up and read on a rainy day - easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 11/28/2013

    " So sad to know that this is the end of the series but certainly this book was as good as the rest! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 11/15/2013

    " Whew--a bit of a whirlwind to the end, but really good. Don't miss all the Baxter titles listed in the last 3 paragraphs of the book! It's both cool and corny, I think. My own corniness makes it especially cool. Paradox. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 11/6/2013

    " I enjoyed reading this book. It wasn't nearly as heart-wrenching as the other series conclusions. I was happy that she left some storylines open, so everything was not "neat" and tied up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte | 10/18/2013

    " I can't wait to read the next series of 3 books!! Great read!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elisa | 9/24/2013

    " Sorry to see this series end. This has been one of the best series of a family I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan Slocum | 8/24/2013

    " Oh Ashley.... Liked it. End of an era. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynnette Franciscus | 4/28/2013

    " Excellent end to the 14 book series. If I didn't have so many other books to read, I'd read them all again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 3/13/2013

    " last of a series. OK getting kind of predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 11/21/2012

    " What a great ending to a wonderful series!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leigh | 3/25/2012

    " I always enjoy Karen Kingsbury for a quick and easy read. This tied up a lot of the loose ends of the Baxter family and also made me curious about some of the peripheral characters that will be in Karen's next series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 3/10/2012

    " This finishes the Baxter family series. Even though it was predictable at times, the family values and how they affected their reaction to their circumstances were good to think about. A very enjoyable read. Sorry to see the series end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Micki | 2/2/2012

    " It was a disappointing ending to the Karen Kingsbury Baxter series. It simply read as a summary of ALL the rest of the books with a surprising twist at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendi | 1/10/2012

    " This was a very nice ending to the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 11/23/2011

    " I was kinda disappointed in this book. It seemed rushed and too perfect. "
