The author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, and Shanghai Girls
has garnered international acclaim for her great skill at rendering the
intricate relationships of women and the complex meeting of history and
fate. Now comes Lisa See’s highly anticipated new novel, China Dolls.
 
It’s 1938 in San Francisco: a world’s fair is preparing to open on
Treasure Island, a war is brewing overseas, and the city is alive with
possibilities. Grace, Helen, and Ruby, three young women from very
different backgrounds, meet by chance at the exclusive and glamorous
Forbidden City nightclub. Grace Lee, an American-born Chinese girl, has
fled the Midwest with nothing but heartache, talent, and a pair of
dancing shoes. Helen Fong lives with her extended family in Chinatown,
where her traditional parents insist that she guard her reputation like a
piece of jade. The stunning Ruby Tom challenges the boundaries of
convention at every turn with her defiant attitude and no-holds-barred
ambition.
 
The girls become fast friends, relying on one
another through unexpected challenges and shifting fortunes. When their
dark secrets are exposed and the invisible thread of fate binds them
even tighter, they find the strength and resilience to reach for their
dreams. But after the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor, paranoia and
suspicion threaten to destroy their lives, and a shocking act of
betrayal changes everything.
