Dreams of Joy by Lisa See

Lisa See's follow up to the highly acclaimed "Shanghai Girls" does not disappoint: the story begins with Joy fleeing to China following her discovery of a life-altering family secret to join the People's Republic of China during Mao's Great Leap Forward in 1957. Desperate to rescue her daughter, Pearl chooses to accept the risks and return to her homeland and bring Joy back to Los Angeles. See writes a breath-taking tale of their experiences and explores themes such as forgiveness, love, trust and courage.
