In this wonderfully detailed narrative, Daryl Yeap brings us the fascinating story of Hui-lan, Ida and Lucy, daughters and wife of Asia's richest man at the turn of the 20th century - Oei Tiong-ham. Flying planes, managing Asia's richest estate and charming the West with their sense of style and sophistication - at a time when bound feet, matchmaking and subservience were in vogue - the three women punctured through cultural stereotypes and challenged the ideals of womanhood. In doing so, they paved the way for millions to follow. Written in a distinct style, the book is revealing, holding surprises even for those familiar with their stories.
