Against the Odds, Kah Har holds onto her goal. She turns a blind eye to contemptuous stares, ignores the condescension of those she has served, and swallows the insults of relatives. She remains undeterred by the hurt and pain that she suffers quietly so her children will succeed.
This uplifting story is set in the small town of Keluang, nestled in the state of Johore in the former British colony of Malaya. Even as a young girl, Kah Har bravely faces many challenges. Originating from the province of Fujian, China, her lack of an education does not prevent her from embracing the dream of seeing her children gain a respectable place in society that has been denied her. What won’t a mother do for her children?
