A storm the size of Texas brews when Gloria Powell and Kai Chang meet in a Ft. Worth hotel. They have come to discuss the future of Lily, the daughter Gloria adopted from China and the sister Kai hopes to reclaim. Kai is a doctor who had to give up her little sister during the Cultural Revolution and has since discovered that an inherited genetic defect may be waiting to fatally strike Lily. Gloria's relationship with her daughter is tattered and strained, and the arrival of Kai, despite the woman's apparent good intentions, makes Gloria fearful.
Gloria longs to restore her relationship with Lily, but in the wake of this potentially devastating diagnosis, is Kai an answer to prayer - or will her arrival force Gloria to sacrifice more than she ever imagined?
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is a good book book for people who are patient and open minded and not close minded.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Dr. Kai was the hardest working person in the book and explained more about the story than any other person.
What about Kris Faulkner’s performance did you like?
Ver flexible but there are errors and can be over looked.
Any additional comments?
This is a Southern Baptist Book , Texas Culture and a clash with Asian culture. However if you like this type of story you you may go to bed late a couple of days and learn a some thing if you research the subject and get the book. It's a novel and I think it's great for me. Sure it's not perfect but what is. You may learn a lot by giving the author a chance about Mao, PKD cross cultural adoption problems andhow wonderful the world is and isn't, yin yang, feng shui.
