Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week's pick:
Dreams of Joy by Lisa See
Publication Date: May 31, 2011
See here offers a continuation of Shanghai Girls, in which carefree and beautiful Chinese sisters May and Pearl are married off to two Chinese men from America to pay their father’s gambling debt. Now, Pearl’s distraught daughter, Joy, has fled to what has become Communist China, ready to make a new life for herself—and find her real father. Of course, Pearl follows, determined to bring her home. Shanghai Girls has sold 200,000 copies in hardcover and 350,000 copies in paperback so far, so there will be a big audience for this book, but reportedly it can stand on its own.
I am so excited about this one! I can hardly wait! What are you waiting for this week?
