A Night In with

Vanessa Chan

Join author Vanessa Chan and In Memoriam author Alice Winn in conversation as they celebrate the publication of Vanessa’s spellbinding and sweeping debut novel, The Storm We Made

Step into the captivating world of British-occupied Malaya in the 1930s, where ambition collides with destiny, and familial love is tested amidst the brutal circumstances of World War II. Cecily Alcantara's yearning for a bigger life becomes a catalyst for a gripping family drama that alters the course of history. 

In The Storm We Made, Vanessa skilfully weaves a tale of ambition, deceit, and the resilient power of family ties, partially based on the real-life experiences of Vanessa's grandparents during the wartime conflict.
