This is the story of two sisters sold into marriage, trying to escape Shanghai as the Japanese invade. I liked some of this book, but not enough to say I enjoyed it overall. *Spoiler* There's a pretty graphic rape scene early on, which really bothered me. Most people have no problem reading depressing fiction because it's fiction. The book is fiction, but that event is not. It happened to many people and still happens. :0( Anyway, the descriptions of the setting are very vivid, which is great. But the ending feels so unfinished. :0/ I'm not going to recommend this book to anyone.
