9780140287806: Falling Leaves Return to Their Roots: The True Story of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter

This is a Chinese woman's story of how she suffered appalling emotional deprivation and rejection by her family as a child growing up in China and Hong Kong in the 40s and 50s, and of its consequences in her adult life, above which she rose to make a happy marriage and become an extremely successful doctor and business woman in the USA. It's also a story about Hong Kong: of middle class life at the time of European concessions and thereafter.
