Abstract:

"A documentary maker, Gail Lim has devoted her professional life to getting to the heart of a story, and she is both tenacious and compassionate in her pursuit. But the one story that has remained hidden from her is that of her father's past in war-torn Asia, a past that fiercely grips her imagination." "As a child, Matthew Lim lived in a Malaysian village occupied by the Japanese. He and his beloved Ani wandered the jungle fringe under the terrifying pall of war. The aftermath of the occupation shattered their families, splitting the two apart until a brief reunion years later. But the secrets Matthew and Ani shared cast a shadow over his life that his daughter now desperately seeks to understand."

"As Gail pieces together a history that spans six decades and four continents, her search for the truth about her father takes her to the Netherlands, where she finally unearths more about the mysterious Ani. But when she brings into focus the complex love triangle that shaped her parents' fates, Gail also comes face-to-face with the most painful choices in her own life."--Jacket.
