At the time of her death in Victoria, British Columbia, Princess Peggy Abkhazi left behind a life of privilege. Reigning with her royal Georgian husband over the internationally acclaimed Abkhazi Garden, she had come far from her orphanhood in the industrial slums of Lancaster, England. Peggy lived on the English Channel during the First World War, studied music in Paris in the bohemian twenties, and led a socialite's life in Shanghai during its racy thirties. Most significantly, she was kept prisoner in Japanese-occupied Shanghai for more than two years of the Second World War-an experience she took great risk to document in a clandestine journal [see this pg]. Embracing life with humour and grace at every turn. A Curious Life tells the remarkable story of this strong, charismatic woman, from England to China to Canada; from pauper to prisoner to princess.
