Thanks to the financial security and material comforts provided by their father’s prosperous rickshaw business, twenty-one-year-old Pearl Chin and her younger sister, May, are having the time of their lives. Though both sisters wave off authority and tradition, they couldn’t be more different: Pearl is a Dragon sign, strong and stubborn, while May is a true Sheep, adorable and placid. Both are beautiful, modern, and carefree . . . until the day their father tells them that he has gambled away their wealth and that in order to repay his debts he must sell the girls as wives to suitors who have traveled from California to find Chinese brides.<br /><br /> As Japanese bombs fall on their beloved city, Pearl and May set out on the journey of a lifetime, one that will take them through the Chinese countryside, in and out of the clutch of brutal soldiers, and across the Pacific to the shores of America. In Los Angeles they begin a fresh chapter, trying to find love with the strangers they have married, brushing against the seduction of Hollywood, and striving to embrace American life even as they fight against discrimination, brave Communist witch hunts, and find themselves hemmed in by Chinatown’s old ways and rules. <br /><br /> At its heart, <i>Shanghai Girls</i> is a story of sisters: Pearl and May are inseparable best friends who share hopes, dreams, and a deep connection, but like sisters everywhere they also harbor petty jealousies and rivalries.

Description :  From #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Lisa See, “one of those special writers capable of delivering both poetry and plot” (<i>The New York Times Book Review</i>), a moving novel about tradition, tea farming, and the bonds between mothers and daughters.<br /><br />In their remote mountain village, Li-yan and her family align their lives around the seasons and the farming of tea.

Slowly, Li-yan, one of the few educated girls on her mountain, begins to reject the customs that shaped her early life. When she has a baby out of wedlock—conceived with a man her parents consider a poor choice—she rejects the tradition that would compel her to give the child over to be killed, and instead leaves her, wrapped in a blanket with a tea cake tucked in its folds, near an orphanage in a nearby city.<br /><br /> As Li-yan comes into herself, leaving her insular village for an education, a business, and city life, her daughter, Haley, is raised in California by loving adoptive parents. Despite her privileged childhood, Haley wonders about her origins. Across the ocean Li-yan longs for her lost daughter. Over the course of years, each searches for meaning in the study of Pu’er, the tea that has shaped their family’s destiny for centuries.<br /><br />A powerful story about circumstances, culture, and distance, <i>The </i><i>Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane</i> paints an unforgettable portrait of a little known region and its people and celebrates the bond of family.

Release Date :  2005-06-28
Description :  BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lisa See's <i>Peony in Love.</i><br /><br /> Lily is haunted by memories–of who she once was, and of a person, long gone, who defined her existence. She has nothing but time now, as she recounts the tale of Snow Flower, and asks the gods for forgiveness.<br /><br /> In nineteenth-century China, when wives and daughters were foot-bound and lived in almost total seclusion, the women in one remote Hunan county developed their own secret code for communication: nu shu (“women’s writing”). Some girls were paired with laotongs, “old sames,” in emotional matches that lasted throughout their lives. They painted letters on fans, embroidered messages on handkerchiefs, and composed stories, thereby reaching out of their isolation to share their hopes, dreams, and accomplishments.<br /><br /> With the arrival of a silk fan on which Snow Flower has composed for Lily a poem of introduction in nu shu, their friendship is sealed and they become “old sames” at the tender age of seven. As the years pass, through famine and rebellion, they reflect upon their arranged marriages, loneliness, and the joys and tragedies of motherhood. The two find solace, developing a bond that keeps their spirits alive. But when a misunderstanding arises, their lifelong friendship suddenly threatens to tear apart.<br /><br /> Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a brilliantly realistic journey back to an era of Chinese history that is as deeply moving as it is sorrowful. With the period detail and deep resonance of Memoirs of a Geisha, this lyrical and emotionally charged novel delves into one of the most mysterious of human relationships: female friendship.

Description :  “Lisa See begins to do for Beijing what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle did for turn-of-the-century London or Dashiell Hammett did for 1920s San Francisco: She discerns the hidden city lurking beneath the public facade.”<br /><i>–The Washington Post Book World</i><br /><br />In the depths of a Beijing winter, during the waning days of Deng Xiaoping’s reign, the U.S. ambassador’s son is found dead–his body entombed in a frozen lake. Around the same time, aboard a ship adrift off the coast of Southern California, Assistant U.S. Attorney David Stark makes a startling discovery: the corpse of a Red Prince, a scion of China’s political elite.<br /><br />The Chinese and American governments suspect that the deaths are connected and, in an unprecedented move, they join forces to see justice done. In Beijing, David teams up with the unorthodox police detective Liu Hulan. In an investigation that brings them to every corner of China and sparks an intense attraction between the two, David and Hulan discover a web linking human trafficking to the drug trade to governmental treachery–a web reaching from the Forbidden City to the heart of Los Angeles and, like the wide flower net used by Chinese fishermen, threatening to ensnare all within its reach.<br /><br />“A graceful rendering of two different and complex cultures, within a highly intricate plot . . .

7 Peony in Love

Release Date :  2007-06-26
Description :  BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lisa See's <i>Shanghai Girls</i>.<br /><br /> “I finally understand what the poets have written. In spring, moved to passion; in autumn only regret.”<br /><br /> For young Peony, betrothed to a suitor she has never met, these lyrics from The Peony Pavilion mirror her own longings. In the garden of the Chen Family Villa, amid the scent of ginger, green tea, and jasmine, a small theatrical troupe is performing scenes from this epic opera, a live spectacle few females have ever seen. Like the heroine in the drama, Peony is the cloistered daughter of a wealthy family, trapped like a good-luck cricket in a bamboo-and-lacquer cage. Though raised to be obedient, Peony has dreams of her own.<br /><br /> Peony’s mother is against her daughter’ s attending the production: “Unmarried girls should not be seen in public.” But Peony’ s father assures his wife that proprieties will be maintained, and that the women will watch the opera from behind a screen. Yet through its cracks, Peony catches sight of an elegant, handsome man with hair as black as a cave–and is immediately overcome with emotion.<br /><br /> So begins Peony’s unforgettable journey of love and destiny, desire and sorrow–as Lisa See’s haunting new novel, based on actual historical events, takes readers back to seventeenth-century China, after the Manchus seize power and the Ming dynasty is crushed. <br /><br /> Steeped in traditions and ritual, this story brings to life another time and place–even the intricate realm of the afterworld, with its protocols, pathways, and stages of existence, a vividly imagined place where one’ s soul is divided into three, ancestors offer guidance, misdeeds are punished, and hungry ghosts wander the earth. Immersed in the richness and magic of the Chinese vision of the afterlife, transcending even death, <i>Peony in Love</i> explores, beautifully, the many manifestations of love. Ultimately, Lisa See’s new novel addresses universal themes: the bonds of friendship, the power of words, and the age-old desire of women to be heard.

Description :  When the body of an American archaeologist is found floating in the Yangzi River, Ministry of Public Security agent Liu Hulan and her husband, American attorney David Stark, are dispatched to Site 518 to investigate. As Hulan scrutinizes this death—or is it a murder?—David, on behalf of the National Relics Bureau, tries to discover who has stolen from the site an artifact that may prove to the world China’s claim that it is the oldest uninterrupted civilization on earth. This artifact is not only an object of great monetary value but one that is emblematic of the very soul of China. Everyone—from the Chinese government, to a religious cult, to an unscrupulous American art collector—wants this relic, and some, it seems, may be willing to kill to get it. At stake in this investigation is control of China’s history and national pride, and even stability between China and the United States.<br /><br /> The troubled Hulan must overcome her own fears of failure, while David tries desperately to break through the shell that has built up around his wife. As Hulan and David are enmeshed in international schemes for power and the turbulence of their own relationship, these hunters after the truth become the hunted—in a fast-driving narrative set against the backdrop of the building of the Three Gorges Dam, the largest and most expensive project China has undertaken since the Great Wall and the subject of great international debate. It is here, in the heart of the Three Gorges, that David and Hulan will battle their enemies and their own natures to see who will win China’s dragon bones.<br /><br /> <i>Dragon Bones</i> combines ancient myth with contemporary anxieties concerning religious fanaticism and terrorism to tell a story of love, betrayal, history, ecology, greed—and gory murder.

Description :  En una remota provincia de China, las mujeres crearon hace siglos un lenguaje secreto para comunicarse libremente entre sí: el nu shu. Aisladas en sus casas y sometidas a la férrea autoridad masculina, el &amp;lt;i&amp;gt;nu shu&amp;lt;/i&amp;gt; era su única vía de escape. Mediante sus mensajes, escritos o bordados en telas, abanicos y otros objetos, daban testimonio de un mundo tan sofisticado como implacable. El año 2002, la autora de esta novela viajó a la provincia de Huan, cuna de esta milenaria escritura fonética, para estudiarla en profundidad. Su prolongada estancia le permitió recoger testimonios de mujeres que la conocían, así como de la última hablante de nu shu, la nonagenaria Yang Huanyi. A partir de aquellas investigaciones, Lisa See concibió esta conmovedora historia sobre la amistad entre dos mujeres, Lirio Blanco y Flor de Nieve.&amp;lt;br/&amp;gt;Como prueba de su buena estrella, la pequeña Lirio Blanco, hija de una humilde familia de campesinos, será hermanada con Flor de Nieve, de muy diferente ascendencia social.

Así pues, a lo largo de los años, Lirio Blanco y Flor de Nieve se comunicarán gracias a ese lenguaje secreto, compartiendo sus más íntimos pensamientos y emociones, y consolándose de las penalidades del matrimonio y la maternidad. El &amp;lt;i&amp;gt;nu shu&amp;lt;/i&amp;gt; las mantendrá unidas, hasta que un error de interpretación amenazará con truncar su profunda amistad.&amp;lt;br/&amp;gt;Escrita con la objetividad de un historiador y la pasión de un novelista, &amp;lt;i&amp;lt;El abanico de seda&amp;lt;/i&amp;gt; es una ventana a un mundo asombroso, lejano y desconocido, un retrato vivo de la vida de unas mujeres extraordinarias que dejará en el lector, sin duda, una impresión difícil de olvidar.

Now the entire series is available in one handy eBook bundle:<br /> &#xa0;<br /> <b>FLOWER NET</b><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> <b>“See brings a cool, knowing eye to Chinese-American relations while crafting a nifty tale of suspense.”—<i>Chicago Tribune</i></b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> In the waning days of Deng Xiaoping’s reign, the U.S. ambassador’s son is found entombed in a frozen lake. Off the coast of California, Assistant U.S. Attorney David Stark discovers the corpse of a Red Prince, a scion of China’s political elite. With the Chinese and American governments joining forces to see justice done, David teams up with unorthodox police detective Liu Hulan in Beijing. As their investigation sparks an intense connection, David and Hulan uncover a web linking human trafficking to the drug trade and to governmental treachery—a web reaching from the Forbidden City to Los Angeles and, like the wide flower net used by Chinese fishermen, threatening to ensnare all within its reach.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> <b>THE INTERIOR</b><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> <b>“Immediate, haunting and exquisitely rendered.”—<i>San Francisco Chronicle</i></b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> As David Stark opens a law office in Beijing, Liu Hulan receives an urgent message imploring her to investigate the death of an old friend’s daughter, who worked for a toy company about to be sold to a new client of David’s. Despite his protests, Hulan goes undercover at the toy factory in a rural village deep in the heart of China, a place that forces her to face a past she has long been running from. Suddenly Hulan and David find themselves on opposing sides: one trying to expose a rogue company, the other bound to protect his client. As pressures mount, they uncover universal truths about good and evil, right and wrong—and the sometimes subtle lines that distinguish them.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> <b>DRAGON BONES</b><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> <b>“Stays with you long after the conventional thriller is forgotten.”—<i>The Washington Post Book World</i></b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> Liu Hulan and David Stark are traveling to one of the most beautiful places on earth: the Three Gorges, where China’s biggest engineering project since the Great Wall is taking place. Hulan is there to investigate the death of an American archaeologist found in the Yangzi River; David is trying to figure out who’s stealing artifacts and selling them on the international art market. Haunting the investigation is the possibility that an artifact has been found that could very well alter the history of civilization. Together, David and Hulan unearth more scandals and revive tragic memories as they struggle to solve a mystery as big, unruly, and complex as China itself.<br />&#xa0;<br /> <b>Praise for Lisa See and her Red Princess mysteries</b><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> “One of the classier practitioners of . . . the international thriller . . . She draws her characters . . . with convincing depth, and offers up documentary social detail that reeks of freshly raked muck. See’s China is as vivid as Upton Sinclair’s Chicago.”<b>—<i>The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br /> “A graceful rendering of two different and complex cultures . . . The starkly beautiful landscapes of Beijing and its surrounding countryside are depicted with a lyrical precision.”<b>—<i>Los Angeles Times Book Review</i></b>

Description :  Ottuagenaria e tormentata dai rimorsi, Giglio Bianco ripensa al proprio passato e a Fiore di Neve, l'amica scomparsa da molti anni che ha avuto un ruolo cruciale nella sua esistenza. Poiché le rimane solo il dono del tempo, vuole onorarlo raccontando la storia della sua laotong - la compagna di parole segrete - e del tragico equivoco che ha amaramente segnato un legame lungo una vita. Ha inizio così una vicenda di intensa drammaticità ambientata nella Cina del XIX secolo, quando mogli e figlie ancora avevano i piedi bendati e vivevano in uno stato di isolamento pressoché totale. Allora le donne di una remota contea dello Hunan ricorrevano a un codice segreto per comunicare tra loro. Si scambiavano lettere tracciate a pennello sui ventagli o messaggi ricamati sui fazzoletti, e inventavano racconti, sfuggendo così alla propria reclusione per condividere speranze, sogni e conquiste. Un viaggio a ritroso orchestrato con magistrale realismo verso un periodo della storia cinese commovente e doloroso insieme, che all'attenzione ai particolari storici e di costume fonde una capacità evocativa straordinaria. Un romanzo lirico e carico di emozioni che analizza una delle relazioni umane più forti e misteriose: l'amicizia femminile.

Description :  Dette er historien om to kinesiske søstres skæbne og drømmen om Amerika. <br /><br />Den 21-årige Pearl og hendes yngre søster May lever et ubekymret liv i 1930’ernes Shanghai – Asiens Paris. De har tilegnet sig en vestlig moderne livsstil, hvor det er slut med indsnørede fødder. Men selv om pigerne lever et frit liv, er Kina stadig et patriarkalsk samfund. <br />Da faren mister sin rickshaw forretning pga. spillegæld, er det slut med det sorgløse liv. For at kunne indfri spillegælden ”sælges” pigerne til ægteskab med tilsyneladende velstående kinesiske udvandrere i Los Angeles, men snart falder de japanske bomber over Shanghai, og alt er kaos. Søstrene og deres mor begiver sig ud på de støvede landeveje på flugt fra ægteskab og undertrykkelse, men kun for at møde en værre skæbne. Søstrene beslutter sig til sidst for at rejse til Amerika over til ægtemændene. Men vel ankommet til Angel Island – San Franciscos modtagelsessted for immigranter – venter nye prøvelser. Da søstrene endelig genforenes med deres mænd og svigerfamilie i filmbyen, er skuffelsen stor. Pigerne må kæmpe for deres plads i familien, arbejde hårdt i byens Chinatown og samtidig stå imod diskriminationen, der hersker uden for hjemmets fire vægge.

Moderen er imod, at Pæon får lov til at overvære operaen: ”Ugifte piger bør ikke ses i det offentlige.” Men de unge piger bliver placeret bag en beskyttende skærm, så de er skjult for mændene under forestillingen.

Unge piger blev tildelt en veninde for livet, en ´laotong´, og blev ´old sames´.

I en alder af kun syv år er de ´old sames´, og i takt med at årene går med sult og oprør, reflekterer de over arrangerede ægteskaber, ensomhed og glæder og sorger ved at være mor. De finder trøst hos hinanden, udvikler et særligt bånd, som gør dem til sjælevenner. Men så opstår der misforståelser, hemmeligheder afsløres og deres livslange venskab og laotong-forbindelsen trues.

Hanno ventuno e diciotto anni e sono molto unite, pur essendo diversissime: Pearl, nata nell’anno del drago, è tenace e ha uno spiccato senso del dovere, mentre May, nata nell’anno della pecora, ha un carattere più docile. La loro famiglia, grazie alle attività del padre, gode dei privilegi della borghesia di Shanghai: una bella casa, servitori a disposizione e denaro per comprare abiti eleganti e frequentare i locali alla moda. Le due sorelle non hanno bisogno di lavorare e fanno le modelle per hobby, posando per un giovane pittore. Fino a che tutto cambia. Fino a che, un giorno infausto, il padre perde l’intero patrimonio al gioco e si vede costretto a vendere le proprie figlie, dandole in spose a due fratelli cinesi che vivono a Los Angeles. Mentre i bombardamenti giapponesi imperversano sulla loro città, Pearl e May intraprendono un viaggio lungo e travagliato che le porterà nel Sud della Cina e poi, attraversato il Pacifico, nella Città degli Angeli. Qui, nei sobborghi di Chinatown, avrà inizio per loro un nuovo capitolo: la ricerca infaticabile dell’amore in un matrimonio con uno sconosciuto, l’insidioso richiamo di Hollywood, la lotta quotidiana contro le discriminazioni e la nascita di una nuova vita in cui riporre speranze che si credevano perdute...

Release Date :  2015-07-02
Description :  <b>Tre donne fragili eppure incrollabili. Piccole donne capaci di resistere alla corrente impetuosa degli eventi e di serbare intatto, come i fiori di notte, il proprio doloroso segreto...</b> San Francisco, 1938. La città è pronta per la grande esposizione e dei tuoni di guerra in Europa non giunge che un’eco distante. Grace, Helen e Ruby si conoscono poco prima di un provino come ballerine per un nuovo nightclub alle porte di Chinatown. Accomunate dalle origini orientali, le tre ragazze hanno alle spalle storie molto diverse, che però parlano tutte di alienazione. Grace Lee, nata nel Midwest da genitori cinesi, è appena fuggita di casa portando con sé solo le sue ferite e un paio di scarpette da ballo; Helen Fong vive nella dimora tradizionale dei suoi, prigioniera di un futuro che non ha scelto; la spregiudicata Ruby Tom ha lasciato la famiglia alle Hawaii per costruirsi una finta identità. Spinte da questo vuoto, cementeranno un’amicizia fondata sulla condivisione di un sogno. Un sogno di chiffon e lustrini che, se per loro significa riscatto e fama, confermerà un cliché che le vuole in bilico fra tradizione e trasgressione, discriminazione e desiderio, sottomissione e libertà: creature esotiche da esibire tra un numero di acrobati e uno spettacolo di magia. Ben presto, però, il loro legame sarà messo a dura prova da rivalità e gelosie, oltre che dall’irrompere di una guerra solo in apparenza lontana. Fra tradimenti e riconciliazioni, ciascuna di loro dovrà fare i conti con il fantasma del proprio passato, per difendere ciò che rimane del presente...
