From the author of the engaging Amazon five-star biography One Small Pebble . . . A Thousand Ripples.

Sin Wong was born into what should have been a life of ease, a life of abundance in 1920s southern China.

An arranged marriage to a poor farm boy named Suey Fong changed everything. Pregnant, she saw him off to pursue prosperity in America in a separation that was to be no more than a year. But, World War II and other complications kept them on opposite hemispheres for seven long years. Journey with her as she evades the Japanese Imperial Army while caring for her child and other family members.

What were the forces that, despite perilous and cultural headwinds, sustained Sin's indomitable expectation for a future with her husband?

In December 1946, a twist of fate brought her a nearly missed telegram that reignited her hopes for the future. After their joyful reunion, the two of them settled in Oakland, California, and built an incredibly successful business. As if preordained, this business empowered them to sponsor more than fifty other immigrant families, so that these families-and their own six children-would never have to endure the hardships of their forbears.

Celebrate Sin Wong's ultimate triumph as an American citizen through her visceral life story of unexpected encounters between challenge and providence.
