So disappointing. Poorly written. Nothing like his first.

This tale is sadly so much like the Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. While the story is moving it is almost formulaically tragic and sentimental. The story lacked an authenticity that his first book had. I read it but found that I could skip ahead without missing much ( never a good sign).

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet is one of my favorite books. This book is good, but I don't feel he wrote as well as he did with his first novel.

Loved his last book - Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. And loved this book too. Fantastic, writer.

Jamie Ford writes another winner, this time about a young Chinese American boy in an orphanage in the mid 1930's, who sets out to find the truth about who his mother is and why she left him. Ford makes us care about the characters and gives us some insight into Chinese customs and the Chinese American immigrant experience.
