San Francisco, 1989: Forty years after Mao and his People's Liberation Army set poised to change China forever, Dr. Lili Quan prepares for a journey that will change her life forever. To honor her mother's dying wish that Lili "return home," Lili reluctantly sets out for China. For Lili, a passionate idealist, this will be an extraordinary trip filled with remarkable discoveries - from meeting and falling in love with Chi-Wen Zhou, a victim of the Cutural Revolution and zealous Taoist, to finding Dr. Ni-Fu Cheng, the grandfather Lili believed had died years ago. But Dr. Cheng has made the most remarkable discovery of all: he's discovered the secret to long life. As Dr. Cheng's only relative, Lili's life is in jeopardy. As greedy and unscrupulous men vie for control of the most earth-shattering discovery of the century, Lili Quan could become a pawn in a deadly and dangerous international game. Before Lili can hold the key to the future, she must unlock the deadly secrets of the past.

I'd read this book sometime back and bought the audible version for my husband. Ended up listening to it again and enjoyed it even more this time ... it's an exciting and profound story that stands up well to a second reading (listening!) and the actress who read did a terrific job.
Rabbit in the Moon is a moving tale about China, about the potential consequences of finding the secret of long life. about identity, about love and about hope. Terrific!
Rabbit in the Moon is an edge of your seat international thriller. Narrator, Barbara Whitesides, was excellent. She made it very easy to follow the many twists and turns of this enjoyable and interesting novel.
Yes, and I have!
Well written, grabs your interests immediately.
