A storm the size of Texas brews when Gloria Powell and Kai Chang meet in a Dallas hotel. They have come to discuss the future of Lily, the daughter Gloria adopted from China and the sister Kai hopes to reclaim. Kai is a doctor who had to give up her little sister during the Cultural Revolution and has since discovered that an inherited genetic defect may be waiting to fatally strike Lily.
Gloria's relationship with her daughter is tattered and strained, and the arrival of Kai, despite the woman's apparent good intentions, makes Gloria fearful. Gloria longs to restore her relationship with Lily, but in the wake of this potentially devastating diagnosis, is Kai an answer to prayer...or will her arrival force Gloria to sacrifice more than she ever imagined?
I usually always write my own product descriptions, but I had a hard time with this book. This book really wasn't for me. The synopsis sounded really interesting, and I was excited to read it but I quickly started to feel that I chose the wrong book. My problem with the book wasn't the story line, it was the flow. I felt like there was too much dialogue and not enough description. It felt really choppy, and I felt confused at times with Kai's flashbacks to her issues in China. I feel bad because I wanted to like this one, and I've read many rave reviews. I was honestly left thinking "What did I miss?" I know it happens, and not every book is for every reader. I had a hard time liking any of the characters, and really couldn't relate to any of them. I think this is one that you will need to try for yourself if you're interested.
