Author Thomas T. Chin Makes His Novel Debut With Historical Romance Unpredictable Winds

NEW YORK - July 15, 2022 - PRLog -- Artist and author Thomas T. Chin announced the publication of his debut novel Unpredictable Winds (June 27, 2022). Set against 1940s Japanese-occupied Shanghai, Unpredictable Winds takes one of the darkest moments in Chinese history to tell a story of love and friendship.

"I think the unusual dynamic in this story brings necessary cohesiveness among people," said Chin, "especially in today's political climate when nationalism continues to spread around the globe."

Set in the city of Shanghai during Japanese occupation, Unpredictable Winds will appeal to readers of historical fiction and romance, especially those interested in Chinese history and culture.

Unpredictable Winds has already garnered enthusiastic reviews. In their 5-star review, San Francisco Book Review said, "In Unpredictable Winds, Thomas T. Chin builds a deeply emotional, culture-rich, and surprisingly addictive narrative around love and war."

About the Book

Shanghai, 1940s: the Sino-Japanese war. By day, Lee De-Chang serves as the general manager at Bayer Pharmaceuticals, but at night he operates a secret gun-part factory. In public, he is engaged to Lily, the daughter of a wealthy businessman from Hong Kong. In private, he longs for Mei, his beautiful housekeeper from Suzhou, who works to repay her husband's debt. Mei feels guilty that she lives in the comfort zone in the posh French concession while her husband fights in the battles. She uses her spare time to improve herself but inadvertently forms a relationship that haunts her for many years. Unpredictable Winds is a story of unrequited love, secrets, desire, and an unintended friendship that leads to devastating consequences.

Copies of Unpredictable Winds are available through major book retailers in eBook ($6.99) and paperback ($17.99).
