How many of us would willingly forsake a long-held belief for the sake of love? What kind of risks are we capable of undertaking in pursuit of a meaningful connection? At what point do our feelings about the nations, systems, and people we interact with need to be held in high importance?
In Daughter of Palestine, author Victor Yong Jen Ong answers these questions and more in this novel full of history, international politics, cultural divide, romance, manipulation, and deception.
At a seminar in Malaysia, a Chinese man and a Palestinian woman meet who will affect each other’s lives in significant and unexpected ways. Gabriel, an important director with Interamerica, and Yasmin, a researcher with the West Pacific Institute, each harbor distinct and opposing ideas about the world. But when a relationship begins to form between them, later involving their families and influenced by current affairs, it may prove to have disastrous consequences for all involved.
Inspired by the author’s own observations about troubling global attitudes, specifically regarding the United States, this book explores far-reaching themes on an intimate and personal scale.
