A wonderful book telling the stories of people who overcame the greatest obstacles and nightmare situations to achieve happiness. Enjoyed every detail.

Interesting and Informative. Ms. Zia gives us a look at the turmoil inside Shanghai in some critical years seldom covered in US schools. She accomplishes this task by following four young people from the beginning of the Japanese occupation until the Communist victory. The characters are well developed and I found myself fearing for their safety and cheering their successes as the book progressed. I’d recommend it for anyone currently confused by 20th century Chinese history -- it will shed some light on Shanghai.

This book was riveting - I stayed up until 4 am to finish it. I knew some of this history, but never had it come so alive as through the stories of 4 individuals. This is an amazing non-fiction book. Kudos to Helen Zia for spending the twelve years to write it and tell the stories so beautifully. I am so thankful. I have purchased copies for many friends and relatives!
