Historical fiction about the period just before the beginning of the Chinese Cultural Revolution during the Hundred Flowers campaign in the late 1950s. This short novel takes place over a brief period of time in the lives of a Chinese family, where the father has been imprisoned for writing a letter that is critical of Mao. I enjoyed it and it would appeal to readers of multicultural literature and historical fiction.

I especially enjoyed the audio narrator, Simon Vance, and will look for more audio books read by him.
