The Tokyo Express

By Una Rose

General fiction, Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


It is March 2011 and the tsunami has struck. As Conor desperately searches for Mimi, his Japanese wife, he realises how his dark and disturbing behaviour drove her to abandon him in Ireland and return to Japan. Over 60 years earlier, in war-torn Tokyo, another international relationship is emerging from the rubble. Owen is falling in love with Mariko, a passionate and political local woman who takes him on an incredible journey. Then family and fate intervene, leaving the couple destined to never be together. As prejudices continue to collide within two rapidly changing cultures, is Conor about to repeat his grandfather's mistakes?



UNA ROSE grew up in central London, but spent most of her childhood summers in Ireland, and only travelled “properly” abroad for the first time aged 13, on a day trip to France. She went on to read French and Russian at university, spending a year in Bordeaux and Kiev. After taking a postgraduate course in journalism, she accepted a post in Tokyo, working as the personal assistant to the president of the International Table Tennis Federation for two years. Her next move was to Hong Kong where she worked as an international journalist and then to London where she was the UK business correspondent for the South China Morning Post. Una now lives in Essex with her husband and two children and works as an author and freelance journalist.
