Vier junge Frauen zwischen altem China und neuer Welt. Waverly, June, Rose und Lena, vier junge Frauen in San Francisco. Durch und durch Amerikanerinnen, die der American Way of Life stark geprägt hat – im Gegensatz zu ihren Müttern. Die sind 1949 unter dramatischen Umständen vor der roten Armee in die Vereinigten Staaten geflüchtet und noch immer chinesisch bis in die Knochen. Zwei Kulturen prallen aufeinander und scheinen nicht zueinanderzufinden. Bis die Töchter erkennen, dass sie die einmalige Chance haben, zwei Welten in sich zu verbinden, sie müssen nur bereit dafür sein.

A stunning reissue of the international bestseller, from the much-loved author of The Joy Luck Club and The Bonesetter's Daughter. Pearl Louie Brandt has a terrible secret which she tries desperately to keep from her mother, Winne Louie. And Winnie has long kept her own secrets -- about her past and the confusing circumstances of Pearl's birth. Fate intervenes in the form of Helen Kwong, Winnie's so-called sister-in-law, who believes she is dying and must unburden herself of all falsehoods before she flies off to heaven. But, unfortunately, the truth comes in many guises, depending on who is telling the tale. . . Thus begins a story that takes us back to Shanghai in the 1920s, through World War II, and the harrowing events that led to Winnie's arrival in America in 1949. The story is one of innocence and its loss, tragedy and survival and, most of all, the enduring qualities of hope, love and friendship.
