Summary
Li Lan, daughter of a genteel but bankrupt family, has few prospects. Then she receives a proposal from the wealthy and powerful Lim family to become a ghost bride for the family's only son, who recently died under mysterious circumstances. Rarely practiced, traditional ghost marriage is used to placate a restless spirit. Li Lan would have a home for the rest of her days, but at a terrible price

Summary
Although Malacca, Malaya's diverse but declining trading port, has endured Portuguese, Dutch, and finally British rule, local traditions persist. To rescue her once-affluent family from poverty, Li Lan agrees to become the ghost bride of Lim Tian Ching, the deceased son of one of the city's wealthiest families. Though dead, Li Lan's bridegroom makes his presence known, visiting her in dreams while hinting that his was an untimely demise. Now, guided by spirits, Li Lan must undertake a journey into the afterlife to discover the truth. - Description by Gillian Speace
