Description
Although she never set out to write a sequel, Lisa See returns here to the story of Pearl and May, the devoted immigrant sisters from Shanghai Girls, as Pearl's strong-willed 19-year-old daughter Joy runs away from California to Shanghai in 1957, seeking the man she now knows is her father. Both May and Pearl had been in love with Z.G. Li, a famous artist, and Joy is dazzled. While ever-protective Pearl chases after her at any cost, Joy follows her father when he is sent to teach art in remote villages, and marries a local man—one of many rash decisions that shape Joy's new life, even as Mao's disastrous Great Leap Forward is about to plunge the country into famine on an unimaginable scale.

"One of those hard-to-put-down-until-four-in-the-morning books ... a story with characters who enter a reader's life, take up residence, and illuminate the myriad decisions and stories that make up human history."—LATimes

"See is a gifted historical novelist.... The real love story, the one that's artfully shown, is between mother and daughter, and aunt and daughter, as both of the women who had a part in making Joy return to her rescue.... There are no clear heroes or villains, just people who often take wrong turns to their own detriment but for the good of the story, leading to greater strength of character and more durable relationships."—SFChronicle
