Publisher's Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of The Mask of Time and The Original Sin  

As World War II rages, Francine Lawrence and her small daughter, Ruth, wait in the fading splendor of Raffles Hotel in Singapore for Francine's British husband. But when he is delayed, Francine, half-Chinese and unwelcome there, is forced to begin a terrifying journey. Seeking to escape a world exploding in nightmare, Francine ultimately makes a gut-wrenching decision: to entrust Ruth to strangers in order to save the child's life. But when the war ends, all traces of Ruth have vanished; years of searching bring only heartbreak.

Three decades later, Francine is a formidable businesswoman, pouring all her energies into her companies. Then one day a soft-spoken young woman walks into her New York office on the Festival of the Hungry Ghosts. Her name is Sakura, and she hints that she may be Francine's daughter. What Francine does not know is that beneath Sakura's calm surface lives the heart of a warrior. Francine cannot begin to imagine the places Sakura has been, the horrors she has endured - or the secret that gives her the strongest motive in the world to lie....

Good if you like Sidney Sheldon-style storytelling

Yes, this is written very much like a Sidney Sheldon novel, not much depth to the characters, lots of drama / melodrama to keep the paging turning, some romantic entanglements to spice things up, and plenty of exotic locales. It's not great writing but it certainly has entertainment value. But the narration was terrible ! Too slow, wrong vocal style for this story, the narrator sounded too old for the characters.

I loved this book!

This was one of those books I didn’t want to have to turn off and couldn’t wait to listen to again. I loved it. And Nancy Wu’s narration was awesome. Everyone sounded different and I always knew who was speaking.

Captivating and Historical Suffering

I really don't enjoy writing reiews with audible's software...Too sensitive for me. For some reason becasue I type fast and think faster I accidently touch keys where my reviews are swallowed up before they are entered.

Sharing one's thoughts concering a authors' work is personal and thus subjective. Marcius's writing draws me in and lets me understand his characters, I become attached to the story immediately and want to continue to the v end.

Give this audio a chance expecially if you enjoyed the Parisians!
