When I started reading "Shanghai Girls," I was happy to find that it more resembles Lisa See's "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" than "Peony in Love." The story follows two sisters from Shanghai as they are forced into marriages that they try to escape. Once Japan invades China, the sisters are forced to leave everything behind and risk their lives to get to America and the husbands they barely know. Once they reach America, they face a very different life than they expected. The story is at times brutal, and at times beautiful. Set against the changing feelings toward Chinese Americans during WWII and then the rise of communism in China, "Shanghai Girls" follows the sister through family and political changes, tragedies and fortune. Very enjoyable.
