4.75  ·  Rating Details ·  4 Ratings  ·  1 Review
The book traces five generations of a Chinese family, from the mid-1800s to the present, and portrays the family's struggles with racism, riots, revolutions, world wars, and triads (organized crime). Geographically, the story spans the US, Canada, Hong Kong, and China. While the characters are fictional, they are set in historically correct chronologies.

So I may be biased on my review, my professor wrote this book. But I do really think it was a great book and I was really excited to see it was on this website. I just finished it the other week. It was a great story. I honestly did not know much about the Triads or Chinese history before I read it, and while the story is fiction, it is still based on real events which made it that much more interesting.
