When Belle Yang returned home after college, she found comfort in her father's tales of his family's plight in Manchuria during the Second World War. Bell's great grandfather, "the Patriarch," had lorded over a prosperous estate before conflict, famine, and later, Communist oppression diminished his power and divided his family. "In wonderfully dreamy--and often nightmarish black-and-white images" (San Francisco Chronicle), Belle, whose father name her "forget sorrow" to mark a new beginning for himself and his family in America, finds the strength to honor both her father and herself in recalling the lives of her ancestors.
