The Moonlight Palace

We rated this book:


Aggie Hussein is the youngest descendant of the last sultan of Singapore. Orphaned at a young age, she lives with her extended family in the decrepit Kampong Glam palace, bequeathed to her family by the British government generations ago. Poverty-striken, Aggie’s home is slowly falling apart, and while she desperately wants to save the only home she’s ever known, she is not sure how to accomplish it. Worse, there are others who have their sights set upon Kampong Glam. Aggie is only seventeen, but surely she can step up and keep her family in their home.

Set in Singapore in the 1920s, The Moonlight Palace is a fascinating and unique sort of story. Aggie has a good heart, and though she is a terrible judge of character, her determination to do right by her family and friends speaks volumes about her own character. Aggie’s family members are eccentric and lovable, and the repertoire and drama between them adds flavor to the story. Aggie’s adventures is work, family, and love make for an inviting story that you will want to see through to the end.
