Southeast Asia Book Review : The House at the Edge of the Jungle

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Mary Morgan’s “The House at the Edge of the Jungle” is a story of a sister and brother’s journey home. Thirty years before the start of "The House at the Edge of the Jungle," the siblings traveled to England as refugees. Forced by the approaching Japanese soldiers, their parents sent the pair away from Malaysia. She was five; he was a few months old. The father and stepmother stayed behind and disappeared.

Fast forward to 1973, and the siblings are adults. Isabel Cartwright Bennet is a housewife. She misses her sons who are off in boarding school. Victor Cartwright is an accountant for a multi national concern. He misses no one.

Victor’s employer sends him to Malaysia to audit the branch office’s books. For some reason, unknown to him, he invites Isabel to accompany him.

Over the past years, Isabel has thought constantly of “The House at the Edge of the Jungle.” She believes there is something in her past, important but forgotten. If only she could return, she would remember. Therefore, she jumps at the chance to return to Malaysia.

The siblings travel to Singapore and Malaysia. The aura of the mystery envelopes Isabel as well as the hot, humid air. She is driven to uncover the secrets of the past. This she does while unlocking some present-day secrets. What she unlocks, is shocking.

A four star film which depicts life in Changi prison is “King Rat.” The film is gripping. George Segal as King is amazing to watch. Rent a copy. You will think about it for days. Here’s a note on the title character. There was such a person in the prison.
