PRLog - Jan. 21, 2014 - HONG KONG -- Is it possible for someone to lose the ability to speak a language she’s been using for the past 50 years after undergoing surgery? Set in Hong Kong in the 1950s, the fascinating novel Mother’s Tongue poses many questions when a woman undergoes brain surgery for 14 hours, far longer than expected.
When she wakes up, she speaks in a dialect that no one in her family can understand. Like most of the people in Hong Kong, the woman’s family speaks Cantonese. Some older members also use Hakka, a dialect of the Guangdong Province. But when the woman starts talking in Chiu Chow, everyone is puzzled. The woman’s daughter decides to solve the mystery.
Could something have happened in this woman’s past that is now blocking her ability to speak the language she has spoken since childhood? Her daughter unburies some hidden secrets in the novel Mother’s Tongue: A Story of Forgiving and Forgetting.
