It has been hailed as “an important book” by the New York Times and a “compelling debut” by Hua in her review for Alta. Hua’s A River of Stars was named by both the Washington Post and NPR as one of the Best Books of 2018. The book follows the journey of a pregnant Chinese woman as she makes her way to California and stakes a claim to the American dream.
