Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0981549918, Paperback)

This novel covers a tumultuous era in Chinese history beginning in 1937 and ending in 1941. It also explores the circumstances surrounding the true-life event of my grandmother's gift of a concubine to my grandfather on his birthday. This is also a story of family solidarity and feminine heroism in times of war and destruction.
