Born in 1937 in a port city a thousand miles north of Shanghai; Adeline Yen Mah was the youngest child of an affluent Chinese family who enjoyed rare privileges during a time of political and cultural upheaval. But wealth and position could not shield Adeline from a childhood of appalling emotional abuse at the hands of a cruel and manipulative Eurasian stepmother. Determined to survive through her enduring faith in family unity; Adeline struggled for independence as she moved from Hong Kong to England and eventually to the United States to become a physician and writer. A compelling; painful; and ultimately triumphant story of a girl's journey into adulthood; Adeline's story is a testament to the most basic of human needs: acceptance; love; and understanding. With a powerful voice that speaks of the harsh realities of growing up female in a family and society that kept girls in emotional chains; Falling Leaves is a work of heartfelt intimacy and a rare authentic portrait of twentieth-century China. From the Trade Paperback edition.
