"With ravishing sensuousness, it conjures up the lush landscapes and tea estates of Malaya during the 1950s Emergency...A haunting novel about memory."
(Sunday Times Books of the Year)
In the highlands of Malaya, a woman sets out to build a memorial to her sister, killed at the hands of the Japanese during the brutal Occupation of their country. Yun Ling's quest leads her to The Garden of Evening Mists, and to Aritomo, a man of extraordinary skill and reputation, once the gardener of the Emperor of Japan. When she accepts his offer to become his apprentice, she begins a journey into her past, inextricably linked with the secrets of her troubled country's history.
