Now they must flee their home on Drum Wave Islet, which sits just a few hundred meters across the channel from mainland China. But when their mother goes to procure visas for safe passage to Hong Kong, the government will only issue them on the condition that she leave behind one of her children as proof of the family’s intention to return.
Against the backdrop of early Maoist China, this captivating and emotional tale follows a brother, a sister, a father, and a mother as they grapple with their agonizing decision, its far-reaching consequences, and their hope for redemption.

Didn't want this one to end!
Loved the characters so much that I wanted to know what else would happen in their lives. Fantastic novel for those interested in Chinese history too. Even if you're not, I feel certain you'll be engrossed till the end.

The characters were unremarkable, story not well developed, and the narrator somewhat monotone. I was looking forward to listening to this book after Audible’s recommendation, I’m not sure I’ll try another of their favorites.
