Description

In modern-day Singapore, a successful society upheld by stern government and a respectful population, a young woman is about to break all the rules. Yin Ling, enigmatic, beautiful, and engaged to the wealthy, politically ambitious Vincent Chee, falls in love with an outspoken American professor, Ben Gallagher. He in turn is mesmerised by her and the depth of her inner life which finds expression in secret poems and an unwavering devotion to an old, eccentric family servant. Beyond the certainty of Ben and Yin Ling's love are a hundred uncertainties that break out when head and heart collide: East or West; duty or passion; reality or a dream. Which god should Yin Ling follow?show more
