The Rose of Singapore is a delight Oct 15, 2006
The Rose of Singapore is a delightful book. Based on a true story, it is a window into Singapore life in the 1950's. It is at the same time exotic, nostalgic, poignant, humorous and innocent. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a romance in an exotic setting.
