In 1890s Singapore, the formidable Miss Leda Cassidy arrives as paid companion to Sarah Jane Bendemeer, whose family suffers under the thrall of Southeast Asia's most terrifying hantu. But there's more to Miss Cassidy than meets the eye, and she's faced down worse in her life than a pontianak.

However, she may have met her match in the indefatigable businessman, Mr Kay Wing Tong, whose large and constantly-growing family clearly requires female supervision—especially of the particular kind Miss Cassidy can provide. Ill omens and strange happenings surround Mr Kay and his colourful family, and Miss Cassidy must find a way to defend the ones she has learned to love.

Any prospective reader should interpret "strange things" in this novel's blurb as supernatural, magical or demonic, take your pick. I suspect somehow the book is borne out of a tradition of cultural folklore and/or fantasy, but I wish I'd realized that before choosing it. Not for me but the narrator did a very good job.

A creative and magical story, transported me into a different time and place. The narrator was exceptional.

I may not have finished this book had I been reading instead of listening to it, as it drops off about halfway through, but I’m glad I finished it because the ending was charming. Narrator is very good.

Great narration but the supernatural elements are not well woven into the story.

what a cool and interesting story! I was really surprised with the change around the middle of the story, but it was beautifully done. The narrator was fantastic! she really immerse you in the story and makes you feel connected to the characters. loved it!

Magical, fantasies involving blood sucking and time travel are not my genre. Narrator did a nice job.
