About the Book: Under the Red Moon

Three sisters of the Huang clan disperse during World War II.  Golden Ball attends Syracuse University in New York, Silver Bell attends a nearby American high school and Coral Bell, the youngest, remains in Shanghai along with her mother, a concubine.  Set in Shanghai, Hong Kong, and New York, the novel takes readers on a journey from the Nanking Massacre and Korean War to the Great Leap Forward, British colonial rule in Hong Kong and immigration to America.   The stories of the sisters are interwoven and culminate during the Cultural Revolution.
