Sweet Offerings

by Chan Ling Yap

A sweeping, turbulent family saga which begins in Malaysia during WW2 - a country teeming with political upheaval and cultural changes. The dramatic personal stories of Mei Yin and Nelly, first and second wife to the same man, are the best reasons for giving this book a go - not forgetting the mother-in-law from hell.

Extract

For Mei Yin the days and nights were long and lonely during Ming Kong's absence. The atmosphere in the house was stifling. She could not escape the incessant waspish remarks of her mother-in-law. Every misdeed, accident and sorrow was heaped on her, the cause of all things bad. She felt trapped .... She sobbed quietly, her face cradled in her hands. 'Please, please let him come home safely,' she whispered over and over to herself.
