Publisher's Summary

Shanghai, 1937. Pearl and May are two sisters from a bourgeois family. Though their personalities are very different, they are inseparable. Both are living a carefree life...until their father tells them that he has gambled away the family's wealth, and that in order to repay his debts he must sell the girls as wives to two "Gold Mountain" men: Americans.

As Japanese bombs fall on their city, the two sisters set out on the journey of a lifetime, one that will take them to a new, married life in Los Angeles's Chinatown. Here they begin a fresh chapter, despite the racial discrimination and anti-Communist paranoia, because now they have something to strive for: a young, American-born daughter, Joy.
