Book Description

Three sisters struggle to change the course of their destinies in a China that does not belong to them. Yumi uses her dignity, Yuxiu her seductive powers, and Yuyang her desire for success. This breathtaking story vividly captures the demonic desire for power that possesses people. Whether it's in the village of the Wang family, where life is attuned to the rhythm of working the fields and the slogans of the cultural revolution, or in the Peking of the 1980s, not one of these women is prepared to be just another wave in the 'infinite ocean of people'. It is an epic portrayal of life in modern China.
