These Singaporean roots of hers, this side of her—and possibly of me too—were unacceptable. I was determined not to belong, not to fit in, because I was Australian, and Mum ought to be Australian too.

The tug of her roots, the blurring of her role from wife and mother to sister and aunt, angered me.On the eve of her mothers wake, Grace Tay flies to Singapore to join her father and brother and her mothers family. Here she explores her family history, looking for the answers to her mothers death.

This beautiful and moving novel steps between Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia, evoking the life, traditions, and tastes of a forceful Chinese family as well as the hardship, cruelty, and pain. Written in a fresh, contemporary voice tinged with biting humor, this is a story about resilience and a story about migration, but in many ways it is a story about parents expectations for their children.
