In the fifth generation, Pa became the only surviving male descendant of The Grand Patriarch. Pas great mission was the propagation of that bloodline.Jades Ma was a woman ahead of her time. She believed in the importance of women in society, and saw in education the perfect avenue for increasing their social status and worth.The memories of Jades childhood is told through narratives of events seen through the eyes of a child and told with the simplicity of a childs voice.

Jades vivid narratives transport us back in time into a primary school-yard of the 1960s. Jades narratives compels us to empathize with her feelings of fear, pain, and rejection- then leading us to heights of joy as we rejoice with her in her achievements.Jades narrative of Pas sky high expectations imposed on Ma was matched fully by Mas sky high expectations imposed on her girls. This was a reflection of the pecking order of her time – a wife was subservient to her husband, children were subservient to their mother.The book ends with Jades narrative of the sacrificial love of a mother for her daughters.The author spent her childhood years in Singapore, experiencing first-hand the transformation of the tiny British colony into a fully fledged and independent Republic.

This book is a work of historical fiction. The setting is historical, however, names, characters, places, and incidents are products of the authors imagination.
