Renee, if you are interested in other books of similar era, may I suggest, "A Gift Of Rain" by Tan Twan Eng. I promise you, it is heaps better than this Harmony rubbish!
I really enjoy reading "The Harmony Silk Factory," as the writer has a wonderful gift of transporting his readers back to 1940 Malaysia, under the British rule and awaiting for the Japanese invasion. He was also able to describe the surroundings in rural Malaysia vividly, bringing the social life in the 1940s to life. The characters in this book are just so unique and very well-written. The author took his time to develop his characters, bringing their personalities out subtlely. This book is definitely worth your time and effort.
