Synopsis

A BBC TWO BETWEEN THE COVERS BOOK CLUB, PICKAN INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER, SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE, WINNER OF THE MAN ASIAN LITERARY PRIZE AND THE WALTER SCOTT PRIZE

Teoh Yun Ling was seventeen years old when she first heard about Aritomo and the garden. But a war would come to Malaya, and a decade pass before she would travel to see him. A man of extraordinary skill and reputation, Aritomo was once the gardener for the Emperor of Japan, and now Yun Ling needs him.

She needs him to help her build a memorial to her beloved sister, killed at the hands of the Japanese. She wants to learn everything Aritomo can teach her, and do her sister proud, but to do so she must also begin a journey into her own past, a past inextricably linked with the secrets of her troubled country. A story of art, war, love and memory, The Garden of Evening Mists captures a dark moment in history with richness, power and incredible beauty.
