"The stories of these factory girls are not only mesmerizing, tragic, and inspiring--true examples of persistence, endurance, and loneliness--but Chang has also woven in her own family's history, shuttling north and south through China to examine this complicated country’s past, present, and future."Lisa See author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
