"As with their first novel "The Gift of Rain" this book shows the author as a master of cultural complexities. The narrator is the austere Supreme Court judge Teoh Yun Ling, who has retired from public service in Kuala Lumpur to return to the Cameron Highlands, where she has unfinished business: her past and that of her country. As Yun-Ling reconnects with old friends at the hill station and the tone becomes contemplative, we slip into chronologically complex flashbacks. Slowly, the narrative turns to the main dramatic event: the fascinating relationship between Yun Ling and gardener Nakamura Aritomo." Quotes from The Guardian book review.
