Book ReviewThis is a story about two sisters born in Shanghai. We join their story when they are young adults in Shanghai in the late 1930s, just before WWII. The girls come from a fairly well off family, but their fate changes drastically when their father gambles away the family money. The story follows them on their journey from being models to being sold as wives to Chinese American business men to pay off their fathers debts. It is a powerful story of how sisters should stick together no matter what happens in their lives.
