The personal love story between a Chinese man and an African-American woman set against the backdrop of 1960 San Francisco. This memoir is a wonderful look at the lives of two people who are caught up in the racial tensions caused by their inter-racial relationship. The story is a tapestry of romance that uses the threads of the wedding of the couple’s youngest daughter to create an emotional imagery of the times. The book is not so much about racial differences that tend to separate us, but about what it means to be a human being despite those differences. This is a true account - where Asian and African-American meet, clash and finally meld into a beautiful story of the conquering power of love.Amazon USA
