Summary
"As [this] novel sweeps across six decades and two continents, the life of the narrator shadows the course of Taiwan's history from the end of Japanese colonial rule to the decades under martial law and, finally, to Taiwan's transformation into a democracy. But, above all, [it's a] story of a family and a nation grappling with the nuances of complicity and survival, raising the question: how far would you be willing to go for the ones you love?"--Dust jacket flap
Summary
A young woman born as her father goes missing during the 1947 uprising in Taipei describes his homecoming a decade later and how he unwittingly drew her into the uneasy and dangerous political atmosphere of the times
