Product Description

Who was Lorraine Leong? This gripping book narrates the life of a pampered young Cantonese girl born in the rich tin-mining town of Ipoh in the 1920s during British Rule. Growing up amidst her grandfather’s family, his six wives and thirty-nine children, Lorraine’s life was a mix of the old-world charm and a patriarchal society, infused with Chinese and Nyonya cultures and beliefs of the first and second generation Chinese in old Malaya. In an era when a woman’s value was determined more by the men in her life than her own worth, this book brings awareness to the later generations of the obstacles and prejudice women of the past faced and lived with.
