Memories from Afar follows the lives of two young men in Burma - one of royal blood and one commoner - whose lives, while separated by some 60 years in time, are linked by shared custom, traditions and beliefs. Both are forced to struggle against and eventually to flee from oppression; on the one hand that of court intrigue and violence, and on the other, the harsh effects of poverty and a broken home. The parallels continue into their senior years, lived in exile far from their homeland. O'Hara's novella is a whimsical and nostalgic view of growing up in troubled times, of finding the strength to endure and eventually, in one way or another, to prevail. Along this journey, the author introduces us to the sights and sounds of life in traditional Burma.
