Join The Gurkha Museum for a curry and a Question and Answer session with the author to learn about her inspirations behind the story.

As the Second World War sweeps the globe, follow 18-year-old Jim Chance into the jungles of Burma. Meet Thaman, a Gurkha soldier, and join the men in a fight for survival like no other. Raging rivers, ferocious beasts and the deadly might of the Japanese Army will push Jim and Thaman to the edge. Is there a way back from the brink? And when all is said and done, will the world remember their story?
