Review: The Governor’s Daughter: The Scribes of Brahmadhan

The Governor's Daughter: The Scribes of Brahmadhan
The Governor’s Daughter: The Scribes of Brahmadhan by Sambath Meas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Governor’s Daughter is not just a mystery/murder set in South-East Asia but also a true rendering of the times that it is set in. Beautifully written, the author Sambath Maes, has captured the atmosphere and sensibilities of the early 1900’s .And depicts the struggles of the downtrodden, the arrogance of the higher echelons of society. and the struggle and emergence of women to begin to stand up and come into their own. All this is tied in with a murder mystery, with an unexpected finish which is wholly credible within the time-frame of the story. This is an author to look out for!!
