Description

A Chinese-Hawaiian woman explores racial tension and cultural norms through passionate friendship and family tragedy.

"Tyau writes graceful and nuanced prose, and she proves to be a perceptive observer of her character's shifting emotions. This novel does indeed resound sweetly." —Julie Gray, The New York Times Book Review
