Read full description of the books:
Sometimes bad things happen to good people.
In this compelling story, we meet 3 American expat women in Hong Kong whose lives entwine due to an incident. As cosmopolitan as the life may sound, it can be riddled with cultural and economic challenges, personal struggles and sometimes, tragedies.
We meet Mercy, Margaret and Hilary. Mercy, a recent grad, is responsible for the incident that has left her with self destructive behaviours fulfilling the prophecy of bad luck following her.
Margaret, mother of 3, is suffering because of that tragic occurrence and has been left feeling empty and helpless with a constant feeling of being smothered with anxiety that clings to her on a daily basis.
And finally Hilary. Unable to bare children, this becomes the bane of her existence.
All 3 struggle with their experiences and where they sit on the continuum of what is acceptable, what is normal, what defines them as women in this foreign culture that has become their life.
This is raw with emotion and intimacy. It's about relationships and their complexities. It's about moving forward when you least want to.
Lee brings a dimension to these flawed characters making them real. The writing is superb and she is well on her way to becoming a literary master. 5★
