I think that anyone who has lived or worked in P. G would find the novel fascinating. For readers who have not been there, it supplies some opposing views and opens many questions. Judith Hollinshed lived in the remote Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea where she and her husband were coffee plantation owners. There they raised two children under conditions that were primitive by western standards: dirt floors, no electricity, little sanitation, no means of communication, appalling roads, and no privacy. But there were compensations in the magnificent scenery and lush rainforests, with a unique flora and fauna.
Hence, she is uniquely qualified to write Paper Lady, a novel that is part thriller, part romance, about the turbulent times during the transition from Australian governance to the independence of PNG.go to link

Included are the parallel complexities of relationships within the families of coffee growers, their New Guinean workers, the many local tribes, and between these disparate communities. Through years of living alongside one another these groups appeared to live in relative harmony until the imminent handover of the country from Australia to New Guinea, when rogue elements from both communities appeared. The situation is in part exacerbated by the meddling of a well-meaning but naive reporter with no experience of the local complexities. I would have liked a chart of relationships, and a map of the localities, but the list of Pidgin English words and phrases was welcome.
Paper Lady is a timely illustration of how difficult it can be to govern two cultures with the same set of rules. It is a must for those expats who lived through the volatile transitional period, and will be a fascinating read for those who have not ventured into the highlands of PNG.
