A family saga spanning fifty years and three generations, which takes the reader from the France of the Golden age to poverty-stricken post-war Shanghai via the re-imagined rural China of the cultural revolution. Ah-mei and her French grandmother, nainai, share a rare bond. Maybe because ah-mei is the only girl grandchild, or maybe because the pair look so alike – and because neither look much like the rest of their Chinese family. Politics and war make 1960s Shanghai a hard place to grow up, especially when racism and bigotry are rife, and everyone is suspicious of nainai’s European heritage. Ah-mei and her family suffer much in this time of political upheaval, and when the family silk business falters, they are left with almost nothing. But ah-mei and her grandmother are resourceful, and they have one another – and the tenderness they share brings them great strength.
