...A superbly told love story that will tug at your heartstrings and the dilemma easily identifiable in today's society and among families just as much as it was an emerging issue fifty odd years ago. I reckon Chan Ling Yap is a born story-teller

I was intrigued and found myself drawn to the well-fleshed out and believable characters in the book, particularly the feisty An Mei. --Vanessa Tai, Cosmopolitan Singapore

The novel opens in 1969 in Oxford, UK, where our star-crossed Malaysian lovers - Chinese An-Mei and Muslim Hussein - are aware that once they leave university, their relationship will be difficult. Back in Malaysia there was massive racial conflict and violence at this time, such that An-Mei's parents are fleeing to the UK.
But An-Mei returns home with Hussein, and their problems are only just beginning...
A lot happens, the story keeps you interested and I enjoyed it as an undemanding bit of entertainment.
As with the first novel, there is a deft weaving of background historical (and culinary) detail which provides the reader with a greater understanding of the underlying political and social currents.
The book is strongly recommended
