"I could not put this wonderful first novel down. I am a bookseller, and I recommend this one to everyone looking for a really good read. The details include 1930s Shanghai and Pasadena, and they complement the rich characterizations and a search for one's family."

— From Jean, who listens to KCRW in California.
