Item Description...
In the 1920s, a young singer is torn between her fierce desire for independence, and a deep abiding love for her husband, a medical missionary who will become a royal physician to the court of Siam. Can she have it all... or does she have to choose?

Publishers Description
Set in Siam and Europe during the 1920s, a glittering decade of change, "The Moon in the Mango Tree "is based upon the true story of Barbara Bond, a beautiful young opera singer from Philadelphia who is forced to choose between her fierce desire for independence--a desire to create something of her own to give purpose and meaning to her life--and a deep abiding love for her faithful missionary husband whose work creates a gap between them. But when you choose between two things you love, must one be lost forever? Endorsements "Written in gorgeous prose, Pamela Binnings Ewen's remarkable novel enthralled me like no other has for a very long time. Set in exotic Siam and pre-war Europe, this story of a young woman seeking the truth of herself captured my heart."--Bev Marshall, author of "Walking Through Shadows" and "Right as Rain" ""The Moon in the Mango Tree" is an old-fashioned--I mean that in the best sense--tale of love, adventure, faith, and the clash of desire and duty. The writing is wonderful, the story compelling."--Bret Lott, author of "Jewel" (an Oprah's Book Club pick), editor of "The Southern Review" "Lush with the detail of tropical jungles and the richness of the palaces of Siam, author Pamela Binnings Ewen takes us on a journey we hope will never end. Truly a beautifully crafted story told with music that sings still in my ears."
--Jane Kirkpatrick, author of "A Mending at the Edge""" "Absolutely wonderful I couldn't put it down. I picked up "The Moon in the Mango Tree" with some trepidation as it wasn't the type of book I usually read. But I was immediately drawn into the story and into the life of the novel's main character, Babs. Beautifully written, authentically told, Pamela Binnings Ewen has created a compelling story that hits all the right notes."
--Erica Spindler, New York Times bestselling author of "Last Known Victim" and "See Jane Die " "Ewen is a talented writer, and this is a strong addition to Christian fiction."
--"Publishers Weekly
""You will have to read this one to see just how far one sometimes has to go to discover what it really is that they want in life, what will make them feel complete. A MUST READ "
--Beyond Her Book (a "Publishers Weekly" blog)
"An excellent book."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
compelling writing , interesting story.  Dec 18, 2009
I really enjoyed this tale and found it difficult to put down. The writing is excellent and the setting seems realistic. I appreciated the "real" quality of the heroine's faith and the struggle she went through.
Good story, but poorly written  Jul 4, 2009
The book was like a series of unrelated vignettes. I never got a feel
for her relationship to anyone. It could have been a great book.
Lovely  May 14, 2009
I liked this book. It was slow to get into at first, but the story unfolded into a beautiful tale of a woman who became a wife and a mother and wondered if she made the right choices from the beginning. Was she adhering to duty of the times? Could she be the wife her mother expected her to be? Could she live up to being the wife she thought her peers expected?

Barbara questions but chooses love and duty. She grieves giving up dreams and loses her confidence from marital miscommunications as the result of speaking in different love languages. She made the discovery that dreams can be fufilled, only sometimes differently than one may have planned. She could have it all, just not all at the same time.

The setting in Siam and other places she finds herself along the way are descriptive in a way that makes them thier own characters.

The Moon in the Mango Tree is a lovely story of the choices women make and the ultimate happiness acheived in Harvey and Bab's life long marriage.
Truth can be stranger than fiction  Mar 1, 2009
The Moon in the Mango Tree is one of those books I wanted to hurry back to read and was disappointed when there were only a few pages left. I was completely involved in Mrs. Ewen's grandmother's life, the choices she had to make during her life, and the anguish she went through in making them.

Because I am 70 yrs. old, I understood the "rules" by which she was supposed to live. Today's women might not understand the pressure imposed on young women prior to the '60s.

What does one do when she has to choose between the two loves of her life?

Very interesting  Feb 20, 2009
Throughly interesting read, with vivid characters, scenes, and a good job delving into the characters. I really liked this book, and it really takes you to another world!
