Spanning almost a hundred years, this rich and evocative true story recounts the lives of three generations of remarkable Chinese women. Their extraordinary journey takes us from the brutal poverty of village life in mainland China, to newly prosperous 1930s Hong Kong and finally to the UK.

Their lives were as dramatic as the times they lived through. Helen Tse's grandmother was forced to work as an amah after the violent murder of her father.

Crossing the ocean from Hong Kong in the 1950s, Lily honed her famous chicken curry recipe. Eventually she opened one of Manchester's earliest Chinese restaurants. But thanks to gambling and the Triads, they lost it. It was up to Helen and her sisters to re-establish their grandmother's dream. Download and start listening now!

    " This book is a saga of the survival of a Chinese woman who emigrated to Canada from China. It is written respectfully and with love by her two granddaughters. It is very touching. "

    " The quality of the writing sucks! I left the book in my doctor's office and didn't finish it in time for my book club meeting, but the story annoyed me so much I didn't care. "

    " This was a sweet book!! An amazing journey for the women in this family, their struggles and hardships, and the love of food and family recipes that brings everyone together around the table whether in a small China village to Hong Kong and then to Manchester, England. Something for everyone in this touching story. "
