The Main Characters of The Undone Years

Matthew is the son of an English plantation owner. Rajan is his best friend. Rajan’s father works for Matthew’s father as a clerk. Despite their unequal status, the boys view themselves as equal. Their parents don’t approve, which only strengthens their resolve to maintain strong ties.

Mei Ling arrives on the scene. She’s beautiful and catches both boys’ interest. She is strong-willed, and her attitude adds to her appeal.

Chaos ensues as the Malayan Campaign begins. The book follows the three teens through the fall of Malay and Singapore, and the eventual fall of the Japanese insurgency.
