Is he not too old? Is she not too young? Are their worlds not too far apart? This story traces the struggles of an unusual couple through the jungle of human quandaries and predicaments created by the force of tradition, and celebrates the ultimate triumph of an even more extraordinary force – love. It is a love story set in 1950s Singapore.

Bit sentimental for me but kept me reading to the end. Set in 1950's Singapore poor village girl meets very rich man and they fall in love. Lots of opportunity for the author to to write about customs and culture of the time and she does. Nice cosy read for lockdown.
