All Our Brave, Earthly Scars

4.9 rating

A tale of love set against the 2002 Bali bombing in the present, Singapore’s largest fire in the past, and a buried secret between Lee Yang searches desperately for Snow amid the carnage of the 2002 Bali bombings.

From Singapore’s worst fire in 1961, their lives, and later their love, have woven through years of struggle and separation. When a secret that has lain hidden for over thirty years comes to light and the truth unfolds, they are pulled apart. Now, in the face of Indonesia’s worst terror attack in its history, they risk losing one another yet again.

In this novel spanning over four decades, the five elements of fire, water, earth, air and spirit display their power in the lives of Yang, Snow and those around them—an intimate and heart-rending exploration of love and loss, loneliness and courage, scarring and healing.
