Jin, a sensitive kampong boy with an artistic bent, is often found sketching hornbills in the jungle. Stephanie is the Eurasian daughter of an uncompromising brigadier, born into a world of racial and economic privilege. Their torrid affair, set in pre-merger Malaya, must be kept hidden at all costs. But the fragile relationship between these star-crossed lovers is threatened by a single secret—and a moment of thoughtlessness that will echo for decades.
The Brigadier’s Daughter is a tale of young love and hard choices.
