Summary
Looking to reconnect with their ancestral home and with one another, three generations of women tour mainland China on a journey that will change their family forever. When her husband of thirty years is killed in a devastating accident, Irene Shen and her three daughters are set adrift. Nora is the eldest; Kay is the headstrong middle child; and Sophie is the sensitive and artistic youngest. Over days and miles they slowly find their way toward a new understanding of themselves, of one another, and of the vast complexity of their homeland, only to have their new bonds tested as never before when the darkest, most carefully guarded secret of all tumbles to the surface and threatens to tear their family apart forever.--B.I.P
Summary
Widowed after a devastating accident and fearful of facing her grief alone, Chinese-American Irene Shen reunites three generations of independent women from her estranged family--including her mother, sister, and daughters--during a tour of mainland China
