Exquisite setting, multiple conflicts and multi-layered.  Yun Ling, imprisoned and tortured by the Japanese in their occupation of Malaya ends up falling for a Japanese man, full of mystery and intrigue.  Good narration, though you do see the disadvantage of people for whom English is not the first language.

Read.
