    This book is a debut by a Chinese-American writer about a prodigal son whose unexpected return forces his newly wealthy family to confront secrets and unfulfilled promises. After years of chasing the American dream, the Zhen family has moved back to China. Settling into a luxurious serviced apartment in Shanghai, Wei, Lina, and their daughter, Karen, join an elite community of Chinese-born, Western-educated professionals who have returned to a radically transformed city. What We Were Promised explores the question of what we owe to our country, our families, and ourselves.
