Little Hut of Leaping Fishes by Chiew-Siah Tei
Book DescriptionIt is 1875, and at Chai Mansion two babies are born just months apart. As first grandson of Master Chai, Mingzhi's life is already mapped out. Like his grandfather, an opium farmer and feudal landlord, he is destined to inherit wealth and power. His younger brother, Mingyuan, is not so lucky. As second grandson, his fate is to remain forever in his brother's shadow. As the two boys grow, so too do their differences and as Mingzhi seeks to escape the corruption of the mansion through learning, Mingyuan falls under the spell of the dreaded poppy. But when the "foreign devils" threaten to invade, the two brothers must cast aside their bitter rivalry to ensure the survival of their family, and of each other.
