(From the publisher):
In this remarkable first novel, three young children – a sister and her two brothers – come of age in an immigrant Chinese family in Vancouver during the early 1940s. Intertwined with the stories of the children are the experiences of their elders, Old Wong and Poh-Poh. Side by side, the five family members survive the hardships and heartbreaks with grit and humor, discovering a new land without forgetting their common ground.
