Especially for fans of love stories comes a collection written by established and new authors. This anthology is partly inspired by true stories and partly by well-known epic tales.

A young woman of Peranakan descent in Singapore, a Malayalee woman thousands of miles away from Singapore at the brink of WWII and an interracial couple in current times, all face a similar predicament – Do they break free from conventions and follow their beckoning hearts?

A young man with no future nor prospects pines for his one true love in his kampong, a May-December couple’s plans for their second chance is threatened, a young impressionable woman falls for a man-child – Will fate give them a helping hand?

What if Cinderella’s evil stepmother had loved her? What if the hundred nights of pursuit of the 10th-century Japanese court lady Ono Komachi took place in Singapore?

What if a single decision, one moment or an unspoken wish changed your life forever?
