"A riveting memoir of a girl's painful coming-of-age in a wealthy
Chinese family during the 1940s."
A Chinese proverb says, "Falling leaves return to their roots." In
"Chinese Cinderella," Adeline Yen Mah returns to her roots to tell
the story of her painful childhood and her ultimate triumph and
courage in the face of despair. Adeline's affluent, powerful family
considers her bad luck after her mother dies giving birth to her.
Life does not get any easier when her father remarries. She and her
siblings are subjected to the disdain of her stepmother, while her
stepbrother and stepsister are spoiled. Although Adeline wins
prizes at school, they are not enough to compensate for what she
really yearns for -- the love and understanding of her family.
Following the success of the critically acclaimed adult bestseller
"Falling Leaves," this memoir is a moving telling of the classic
Cinderella story, with Adeline Yen Mah providing her own courageous
voice. Includes 6-page photo insert.
"From the Paperback edition."
