“Pursuit of the Golden Lily” is a new novel by R. Emery, inspired by her father's WWII POW diary. Initially documenting the author's journey to return the diary to Thailand where it was written, the Blog now follows her experiences as she self-publishes, launches the novel and reflects on topics woven into the narrative.

Finally here!

The River Khwae Noi, Kanchanaburi
It is humbling to be here finally. To think of all that happened here. To think of all the people who helped to bring me to this place. To think of my father, writing his journal on the banks of this river 73 years ago. The birds are calling as they must have then. The river is flowing as it did then. Life goes on. We are all visitors to this earth. I am eternally grateful to be able to experience these moments.
