About the Book

When young and naive Ruth set out to look for her husband Mark in Malaya in 1950, little did she expect to find herself in a country split by war and ideology and a rival for her husband’s love that is as lovely and exotic as May. A story of human resilience, lies, treachery and love set during the Emergency in Malaya.

“The backdrop is Malaya in its twilight years as a British possession,
and Malaysia at its dawning, with the cruel Emergency period between
as centre ground. As ever, the author tells it how it was, with complete
objectivity and fairness where concerns the evanescent expatriate Brits,
the aristo Malays and the thrusting Chinese. A tangled web of love stories
it may be, yet there is suspense on every page. But whatever else is suspended,
it is never our belief in the characters or the action. An excellent, enjoyable read.”
—BILL JACKSON, Editor, The Corporal and the Celestial

“Although Chinese May and English Ruth and their children become
close friends, there have been many misunderstandings and intrigues along
the way. What at first appears to be a conventional love story, soon develops
into one of intrigue, sexual tension and tragedy. The pace is fast and there is
plenty of action to keep you wanting to turn the page. This book enthralled me.
I could not put it down.”
—JULIA APPLETON, President, Princes Risborough Morning WI
