I really enjoyed "Shanghai Girls" and this was a great ending to a great story. The characters come full circle in this book. The story also gives a vivid look at the beginnings of communist China. Beautiful story of the relationships between mothers and daughters, fathers and daughters, great loves, lost loves, and new loves.
This was a well written story of the true bond between sisters. The sisters faced a lot of struggles together and both dealt with them in different ways, but they supported each other. I also really like the fact that the story gives a sense of what life was like in China during the war and what life was like for Chinese immigrants. It is interesting how you start off thinking that only one of the characters is the strong sister, and then in the end you realize that they were both strong in very different ways. The narrator did a wonderful job. She really did a great job portraying each character. I am looking forward to listening to "Dreams of Joy".
