Forlagets beskrivelse

After reading this novel, your perspective on history & the Chinese will be drasticly altered.

During a trans-Pacific voyage in 1880, a friendship develops between a Chinese merchant, Dai Woo Cheung, and a Rabbi, Nathan Belihis, whose daughter, Louisa befriends Cheung’s son, Wing.

Their destination is Victoria on Vancouver Island, where Cheung owns a store and where Nathan has been appointed the new Rabbi for the local synagogue. Below the passenger deck in steerage is the first cargo of Chinese laborers, hired to help build the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Louisa has grown up in China where her father has served as a Rabbi in a Jewish Chinese colony. Discriminated by the other children on board, Wing & Louisa are terrorized by their peers. Louisa attracts the attention of a crew member who assaults her, then throws her overboard. After Wing saves her life, Louisa becomes infatuated with him.

An anti-Chinese mob protesting the arrival of Chinese railway laborers, greets the ship upon arrival. Cheung joins the CPR to search for Wing, who has been kidnapped. His search is delayed as he heads to San Francisco with a friend, to fulfill a secret mission. He meets up with an old comrade, Yuen, who accompanied him & his father during the 1849 California Gold Rush.

Once the mission has ended, Cheung returns to Canada to rescue his son.

Will Louisa & Wing be reunited? Will their youthful relationship endure?

Or will Louisa & Wing bow to the social conventions of N. America in the 1880's?
