AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"Lying in her arms, he had imagined the city as angels might see it, from far above. What would they see? Would they shake their heads, ringlets bronzed against the purple sky, and move away on wings coated, before there was time to flap, coated with carbon and a touch on the end of very pin feather, a daub of jewelled lead?"

'In the shadow of grief, Sally leaves England to live in Kuala Lumpur on secondment. Henry, a talented young architect, is lured there on contract for a building project. Both are outsiders to KL, drawn into the whirlpool of cultures, creeds and traditions. Unexpectedly both in their separate lives, find love.

'But in this steamy city the edges of what is real and what isn't seem blurred. And while the paths of the two sets of lovers never cross, they become inextricably tangled together in the city's weave.

'A unique story, exquisitely told, of the fragility of love, the surprise gift of life and the power of fate.'
