Shanghai Girls

Shanghai Girls
Author:  Lisa See
Publication Date:  2009
Publisher:  Random House

Donated ByLaura from Booksnob

For readers of the phenomenal bestsellers Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and Peony in Love--a stunning new novel from Lisa See about two sisters who leave Shanghai to find new lives in 1930s Los Angeles.

May and Pearl, two sisters living in Shanghai in the mid-1930s, are beautiful, sophisticated, and well-educated, but their family is on the verge of bankruptcy. Hoping to improve their social standing, May and Pearl’s parents arrange for their daughters to marry “Gold Mountain men” who have come from Los Angeles to find brides.

But when the sisters leave China and arrive at Angel’s Island (the Ellis Island of the West)--where they are detained, interrogated, and humiliated for months--they feel the harsh reality of leaving home. And when May discovers she’s pregnant the situation becomes even more desperate. The sisters make a pact that no one can ever know.

A novel about two sisters, two cultures, and the struggle to find a new life in America while bound to the old, Shanghai Girls is a fresh, fascinating adventure from beloved and bestselling author Lisa See.

      I put up my review of the book. I actually had to sit and digest it for a little bit before I wrote it. I was conflicted about it for a few days.

      I finally posted my review of this wonderful book.

      I know my review is late & I sincerely apologize for it. Between being sick last week & participating in the readathon & yesterday being a holiday ( I completely forgot about that!) my world has been topsy turvy. So sorry!

      My review is here:

      Thank you!
