    I feel that Catherine Lim s later works has degenerated, compared to her earlier works This book marks the beginning of Catherine Lim s career as a trashy romance novelist Her later books seem to center around the same few items spineless Caucasian men, Asian women caught between worlds, sex and sad attempts at Chinese translated to English poetry If i could, i would give this book a half star.

    Kisah seorang perempuan cina bernama Mei Kwei yang lahir di Malaysia Cerita ini berlatar belakang tahun 1950 an Mei Kwei bukan hanya menanggung sengsara sejak awal karena dia seorang perempuan tetapi juga bentuk matanya yang dianggap membawa sial Menyedihkan deh pokoknya, penuh dengan airmataai dengan judulnya.

    Bayangkan bagaimana perasaan seorang Pastor missionaris yang mencintai seorang perempuan cina tercantik di Luping Bikin hati ikut bergetar Catherine Lim sangat piawai merangkai kalimat bagaimana sang pastor menahan perasaannya yang terlarang.

    How anyone dare compare this to Jung Chang Wild Swans I have no idea This is a trashy romantic novel with very little substance to it, enough said.
