The Sinews of Love

(1965)
A novel by

 
 
Orphaned by a tidal wave which claims her parents and her home,
Ming Pei Sha is at the mercy of a world of human squalor and degradation.
Destitute, she sells her body in a loveless match with an old businessman
desperate for a son.

Pei Sha witnesses first-hand the savage contrasts of the teeming city of
Hong Kong, where the affluence and extravagance of the financiers' palaces
cannot hide the appalling poverty of the slums. A city where and ancient and
proud civilisation struggles against the corruption and greed of the modern age.
