Red Thread : A Chinese Tale of Love and Fate in 1830s Singapore (The Straits Quartet) [Paperback]

by Farnham, Dawn

  • (0)

Like Chinese silk, The Red Thread is, by turns, gentle and strong, exploring a love that breaks through the divide of race and culture, a love that is both deeply physical and a marriage of souls. Set against the backdrop of 1830s Singapore where piracy, crime, triads and tigers are commonplace, this cultural romance follows the struggle of two lovers: Zhen, once the lowliest of Chinese coolies and triad member, later chosen to marry into a Peranakan family of Baba Chinese merchants; and Charlotte, an 18-year-old Scots girl and sister of Singapore's Chief of Police. Two cultures bound together by the invisible threads of fate yet separated by cultural diversity. In this first volume of The Straits Quartet, Dawn Farnham incorporates real figures from Singapore's historical past and brings to life the heady atmosphere of Old Singapore, where exotic beliefs and customs clash and jostle in the struggle to make a life and create mutual understanding between peoples from different worlds.
