Beyond the Shores of Home
A saga that stretches over five generations, Beyond the Shores of Home tells story of a family that is challenged and separated because of beliefs, prejudice and poverty until Madison Blue, an American born member of the family brings about a peaceful closure.
The true story of my father and his family in Japanese occupied Malaya. The story begins before the Japanese arrive, when languid streams filled with goldfish meandered gently through placid plantations. Then a storm unceremoniously shatters the peace when the Japanese arrive without much warning and send Malayans scrambling for safety in all directions. Finally, when the British concede defeat and the Japanese are the new masters, a new existence lies beneath murky waters.
