Miss Burma by Charmaine Craig: It's Monday, What Are you Reading?

Miss Burma

Miss Burma tells the story of modern-day Burma through the eyes of Benny and Khin, husband and wife, and their daughter Louisa.

Based on the story of the author’s mother and grandparents, the book is a portrait of how modern Burma came to be, and of the ordinary people swept up in the struggle for self-determination and freedom. It is a powerful novel of love and war, colonialism and ethnicity, and the ties of blood.

I don't think I've ever read a book set in Burma so this sounds fascinating to me.
