About the book
The year is 1883. China is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy. In the countryside antagonism against foreigners and missionaries is growing and the warlords are at large. Li Ling, a young peasant girl in China, flees to Malaya to escape being made a concubine to a warlord only to find herself tricked into becoming a second wife to a rich man with sadistic tendencies. Her life became intertwined with that of her rescuer, Shao Peng, in a Malaya that was rapidly transforming under British rule.
A Flash of Water follows New Beginnings and provides insight to some of the main characters in her first novel, Sweet Offerings, particularly the tyrannical mother-in-law.
