Cochin Fall

British Cochin, 1934

Returning to her home among the palm trees that line the coast of Cochin, South India, after six years at school in England, Clara Saunders is thrilled to learn that the future mapped out for her by her trader father is the one she would have chosen herself.

It’s a future that will unite her with her childhood sweetheart, George Goddard, the son of a neighbouring trader. It will also cement her friendship with George’s vivacious sister, Lizzie, and bring even closer together the two successful trading companies.

Trader Lewis Mackenzie, an employee of Clara’s father, is both ruthless and ambitious. Keen on seeing an expansion of Saunders & Co, and frustrated by the complacency shown by Henry Saunders, he determines to take matters into his own hands.

One simple misunderstanding gives rise to further misunderstandings, and in the face of potential disaster, the happiness of several people hangs in the balance.

Cochin Fall is an unforgettably powerful story of love and betrayal set in Cochin, South India, in the days of the British Raj.

Amazon Buyer Reviews –  [See all reviews]

“Liz Harris has a knack of transporting your imagination to the setting she’s describing. The Indian atmosphere – the sights, sounds – were wonderous and all neatly woven into a very absorbing plot where a misunderstanding sets the main characters on totally different paths to those first imagined. The twists and turns were skilfully crafted and kept me turning the pages. It is a love story and you cannot help but become involved, worrying if Clara, the main character, would find happiness as opposed to disgrace.” (Maggi F. Amazon Review)
