All 10 of us read this book and liked it. We liked the characters and the story. The bond between Vivian and Molly grew as their stories were told. Most of us were not aware of this part of American history.

I loved the relationship between the daughter, Lisle and her Dad. I thought Lisle showed true courage to face her many hardships in life and she did not ever give up hope.

We all enjoyed the novel and the two story lines of Joe and then the rowing. It was a bit too wordy and long for some of us but it was a great story of one man\\\\\\\' never giving up and teamwork!

Most of the group did not enjoy this book. The author's first language is not English but we thought the writing was pretty elementary. We did however, find it informative about the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
