* FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GIRL IN TRANSLATION *

'Kwok is an impressive talent' - KARIN SLAUGHTER 'A beautiful, propulsive story' - LAURA DAVE 'A hugely atmospheric and suspenseful mystery' - LUCY FOLEY

'I will find my daughter. No matter the cost...'

Jasmine Yang thought her daughter was dead at birth. But five years after she was taken from her arms, she learns that her controlling husband sent the baby to America to be adopted, a casualty of China's one-child-policy. Fleeing her rural Chinese village, Jasmine arrives in New York City with nothing except a desperate need to find her daughter. But with her husband on her trail, the clock is ticking, and she's forced to make increasingly risky decisions if she ever hopes to be reunited with her child.

Meanwhile, Rebecca Whitney seems to have it all: a high-powered career, a beautiful home, a handsome husband and an adopted Chinese daughter she adores. But when an industry scandal threatens to jeopardise not only Rebecca's job but her marriage, this perfect world begins to crumble.

Two women in a divided city, separated by wealth and culture, yet bound together by their love for the same child. And when they finally meet, their lives will never be the same again...
