Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

"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.
