NONFIC: Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister: Three Women at the heart of Twentieth-Century China by Jung Chang

February: Fiction Pick

This is a gripping story of love, war, intrigue, bravery, and betrayal, which will take on a journey from Canton to Hawaii to New York, from exiles’ quarters in Japan and Berlin to secret meeting rooms in Moscow, and from the compounds of the Communist elite in Beijing to the corridors of power in democratic Taiwan. In a group biography that is by turns intimate and epic, Jung Chang reveals the lives of three extraordinary women, Soong Sisters from Shanghai who helped shape twentieth-century China.
