9780062227331 Yangsze Chooâ€™s stunning debut, The Ghost Bride, is a startlingly original novel infused with Chinese folklore, romantic intrigue, and unexpected supernatural twists. Li Lan, the daughter of a respectable Chinese family in colonial Malaysia, hopes for a favorable marriage, but her father has lost his fortune, and she has few suitors. Instead, the wealthy Lim family urges her to become a â€œghost brideâ€ for their son, who has recently died under mysterious circumstances. Rarely practiced, a traditional ghost marriage is used to placate a restless spirit. Such a union would guarantee Li Lan a home for the rest of her days, but at what price? Â Night after night, Li Lan is drawn into the shadowy parallel world of the Chinese afterlife, where she must uncover the Lim familyâ€™s darkest secretsâ€”and the truth about her own family. Reminiscent of Lisa Seeâ€™s Peony in Love and Amy Tanâ€™s The Bonesetterâ€™s Daughter, The Ghost Bride is a wondrous coming-of-age story and from a remarkable new voice in fiction.
