An excellent history of life for a Chinese immigrant to Canada. His strength of character kept him going. Well worth reading.
Not non-fiction, but an imagined retelling of the author's grandparents' life. A compelling story of immigration to Canada, even if the prose is barely adequate.
I loved this book. In addition to the well researched history lesson alluded to in the previous comment, the lives of the individual family members were so dramatic, I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it!
Wow! What a phenomenal read! This book of non-fiction traces the family history of Ms. Chong's maternal side, and details how this side of her family was divided between China and Canada. A great history lesson about Vancouver and Nanaimo's Chinatowns, Canada's treatment of Chinese immigrants, and of the hardships faced in China. A must-read.
Interesting true story of a Chinese man who came to Canada with his concubine. Chinese culture in China is transported to Vancouver's Chinatown, but future generations modify it. The author compares the concubine's two older daughters' lives in China with the youngest daughter's life in Canada.
