Emily Nielson is a young married woman who has just arrived in Singapore. Mrs. Chung, an elderly Chinese lady, invites her for a cup of tea and tells her a compelling love story; one Emily is unable to forget.
Nearly thirty years later, Mrs. Chung's story returns to haunt her and she becomes a victim of the intrigues and deceits of the past. She makes a disastrous decision and circumstances lead to sinister consequences.
“Readers will travel a grim and bleak emotional landscape with no points of light to guide the way. Once begun, however, this book is impossible to put down.”
