About the Book

In pre–World War II Hong Kong, twenty-seven-year-old Yuen bachelor Siu Kam cherishes the truth and an easy existence. Despite achieving much success in the world of business, Kam still lives with his staunchly traditional parents, who are anxious that he marry. As per tradition, they consider themselves responsible for finding a suitable bride for him. But fate is about to intervene. While dining out one evening, Kam locks eyes with the lovely Wai Hing and is immediately smitten. Determined to make her his wife, Kam is finally introduced to her through friends and is soon fascinated by Hing’s modern ways, her outspokenness, and her independent spirit. Caught between his intractably traditional parents and the equally strong-willed and indomitable Hing, Kam discovers that the attributes that originally attracted him to this beautiful young woman may well sow the seeds of destruction within his family and deny him any chance of future happiness. Against a tumultuous backdrop when Western ideas were invading the Far East and clashing with long-held beliefs, a man and a woman must decide which is more important—values and cultural differences or true love.
