Dreams of Joy
[a Novel]Book - 2011
A continuation of "Shanghai Girls" finds a devastated Joy reeling from newly uncovered family secrets, and anger at her mother and aunt for keeping them from her. Joy runs away to Shanghai in early 1957 to find her birth father, the artist Z.G. Li, with whom both May and Pearl were once in love. Dazzled by him, and blinded by idealism and defiance, Joy throws herself into the New Society of Red China, heedless of the dangers in the communist regime.
