It’s described as “the story of two people who find love despite the overwhelming differences of their cultures and families. A cross cultural relationship that is forced to confront a number of obstacles including family pressures, xenophobia, and the clash of East and West.” The creators know whereof they speak, since Wilson is a Scot who’s been living in Japan for years, while the Japanese Kutsuwada currently resides in London.
The following exclusive 12-page preview shows a key scene between Lee, a Chinese young woman living in Hong Kong, and her new friend Matt, followed by her father’s reaction, informed by a jealous rival. (Click images to enlarge.)
If you’d like to see more, the first 20 pages of the book are available online, and writer Wilson has also posted some at the NBM blog.
