Denise Chong is the granddaughter of the Concubine. This is a wonderfully insightful book about the arrival of the Concubine in Chinatown in Vancouver, BC in the late 1890s- early 1900s -- what was referred to in China as the Golden Mountain. The 'shared husband' sends most of his money earned back to his wife and family in China, leaving his Canadian family in poverty. The family divided in its extreme. There is so much west coast history in this book! I think this book warrants a wide reading base, it is an amazing story and it has been one of my favourites since I first read it in the 1990s. It moves me and the ending is very gratifying.
