In 1971, teenaged Amrit disappears from her house in the middle of the night. Although her absence is brief, she returns a different person, and the event causes fissures to develop that threaten to unravel her traditional Punjabi Sikh family.
Over the next two decades, as Singapore’s political, social and cultural landscapes change, the family’s attempts to cope with the shifts lead to some disastrous consequences. How do we confront our legacies, and, when necessary, how do we accept change? Inheritance is a universal story of family, identity and belonging.ISBN: 9789814757362
