Love and betrayal set the stage for this epic romance told against the backdrop of Indonesia’s clove cigarette industry.

Cigarette Girl follows three brothers–Lebas, Karim, and Tegar, heirs to the Djagad Raja Clove Cigarettes, as they embark on a quest to fulfill their father’s dying wish: find Jeng Yah, the mysterious woman he has been calling out to on his deathbed. With the little clues they have, the brothers travel across Java, delving into its secrets to locate Jeng Yah.

Cigarette Girl traces the growth of a clove cigarette enterprise from its humble beginnings in the Dutch East Indies during the early 1940s and acquaints readers with the history of Indonesia through the lens of clove cigarettes and unrequited love.
