Fiction. Literature. Historical Fiction. HTML:#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER  Astonishing . . . one of those hard-to-put-down-until-four-in-the morning books . . . a story with characters who enter a readers life, take up residence, and illuminate the myriad decisions and stories that make up human history.Los Angeles Times

In her most powerful novel yet, acclaimed author Lisa See returns to the story of sisters Pearl and May from Shanghai Girls, and Pearls strong-willed nineteen-year-old daughter, Joy. Reeling from newly uncovered family secrets, Joy runs away to Shanghai in early 1957 to find her birth fatherthe artist Z.G. Li, with whom both May and Pearl were once in love. Dazzled by him, and blinded by idealism and defiance, Joy throws herself into the New Society of Red China, heedless of the dangers in the Communist regime. Devastated by Joys flight and terrified for her safety, Pearl is determined to save her daughter, no matter the personal cost. From the crowded city to remote villages, Pearl confronts old demons and almost insurmountable challenges as she follows Joy, hoping for reconciliation. Yet even as Joys and Pearls separate journeys converge, one of the most tragic episodes in Chinas history threatens their very lives.
BONUS: This edition contains a Dreams of Joy discussion guide.

I love Lisa See's writing. It's beautiful (sometimes terrifying) and well-researched. This book is especially good when read with it's prequel, Shanghai Girls. (I received a free ARC of this book from a Goodreads Giveaway) ( )

I always look forward to a Lisa See book. She and Amy Tan have become favorites of mine in the last year. I remember wanting this book so badly after I finished [b:Shanghai Girls|7876197|Shanghai Girls|Lisa See|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51SnVDIpUgL._SL75_.jpg|5991850]. I couldn't wait to read it. I wish that they hadn't come out so far from each other. There were pieces I couldn't remember as well as I wished. I can't imagine reading this book without having read Shanghai Girls. I think it would still be a good read but I walked into this book already knowing Pearl, May, and Joy. I would certainly recommend reading both of them back to back. I could even hope for a third book to further explore what is to become of this family. ( )

Similar to my review for “Shanghai Girls” - somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. This one starts off pretty slowly and then picks up at the end. There is also some really brutal stuff in the middle of this book. I feel like the end of both books was a lot of big stuff that happened very quickly but they were enjoyable overall. ( )

Dreams of Joy by Lisa See. The sequel to the Shanghai Girls. This book sees Joy the real daughter of May although raised as Pearl daughter return to China in the late 1950's in search of her real father. She wants to live the real Chinese life and not what she has become accustomed to in the United States. She ends up living in the country during the Great Leap Forward. Pearl returns to China to find her daughter and bring her home. I really enjoy books by Lisa See and think this one is probably better than the Shanghai Girls, although my favourite is still Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. I think one of the reasons I really like her books is I learn things about a culture I know very little about. ( )

La aclamada escritora Lisa See retoma en Sueños de felicidad la historia de las hermanas Pearl y May, de Dos chicas de Shanghai, y Joy, la tenaz hija de diecinueve años de la primera. Joy, todavía abrumada por los secretos familiares que acaba de descubrir, huye a Shanghái a comienzos de 1957 para buscar a su pa- dre biológico, el artista Z. G. Li, de quien May y Pearl estuvieron enamoradas antaño. Deslumbrada por él, y cegada por el idealismo y los desafíos que plantea la realidad, Joy se sumerge en la Nueva Sociedad de la China roja, ajena a los peligros del régimen comunista. Pearl, desolada por la huida de Joy y aterrada por su seguridad, está decidida a salvar a su hija cueste lo que cueste. Desde la atestada ciudad hasta aldeas remotas, Pearl se enfrenta a viejos demonios y a retos casi insupe- rables mientras sigue a Joy, abrigando la esperanza de la reconciliación. Sin embargo, cuando los periplos de Joy y Pearl por fin convergen, uno de los episodios más trágicos de la historia de China pone en peligro sus vidas.

Although the ending betrays See’s roots in genre fiction, this is a riveting, meticulously researched depiction of one of the world’s worst human-engineered catastrophes.
afegit per Shortride | editaKirkus Reviews (May 15, 2011)
 
With each new novel, Lisa See gets better and better. Each work is more tightly woven, richer with information, its characters more memorable than the last....And so it is with "Dreams of Joy," which picks up where "Shanghai Girls" left off, giving us the story of a young Chinese American woman's search for her father and her three-year odyssey in the People's Republic during Mao Tse-tung's Great Leap Forward. The scope of the novel is astonishing — including the ingenious ways Chinese women handled their menstrual periods and the carefully concealed and shocking stories of starvation in the communes, the suffocating collectives into which the country was divided...The novel is front-loaded with all of these revelations, and continues to move extremely quickly until the very end — one of those hard-to-put-down-until-four-in-the-morning books — but happily, the action is not all external
 
Crowd-pleaser See continues the story she began in Shanghai Girls with this compelling account of life inside the People's Republic of China during Mao's disastrous "Great Leap Forward." ...See writes vividly about China's people, places and customs; her descriptions of various state banquets will bring on hunger pangs. That such feasts were served while millions starved is a sobering history lesson in the midst of this engrossing saga about two tiger mothers of an earlier day.
