"Singapore, 1927. Three young people are questioning whether this in-between island can ever truly be their home. Mei Lan yearns to free herself from the stifling traditions of a famous Chinese dynasty; Howard seethes at the indignities heaped on his fellow Eurasians by the colonial British; Raj, fresh off the boat from India, wants only to work hard and become a successful businessman. As the years pass, and the Second World War sweeps through the east, the three are thrown together in unexpected ways, and tested to breaking point"--Publisher description.
