Following the Wrong God Home by Catherine Lim (2002, Paperback)

Brand New (pages lightly tanned)

In modern-day Singapore, a successful society upheld by stern government and a respectful population, a young woman is about to break all the rules. Yin Ling, enigmatic, beautiful, and engaged to the wealthy, politically ambitious Vincent Chee, falls in love with an outspoken American professor, Ben Gallagher. He in turn is mesmerized by her and the depth of her inner life, which finds expression in secret poems and an unwavering devotion to an old, eccentric family servant. Beyond the certainty of Ben and Yin Lings love are a hundred uncertainties that break out when head and heart collide: East or West; duty or passion; reality or a dream? Which god should Yin Ling follow?, Yin Ling--poor, beautiful, an outstanding student and a poet--is to marry Vincent Chee, a rich PhD student from a very traditional, upper-class family. She will become a dutiful wife, not the existence of her dreams, but the Chees' money and influence is essential, for her mother has cancer and they cannot abandon a faithful old servant, Ah Heng Cheh. However, the mapping out of Ling's future doesn't proceed smoothly. The birth of a son makes her moral predicament even more agonizing.
