Read full description of the books:
This is the first book I have read by Aimee E. Liu. It was hard to put down. An American woman falls in love with a Chinese scholar studying in America. They marry in the only place in America that allows interracial marriage. After a short time living in America, trying to overcome Chinese racial hatred and failing, the family moves to China, facing this time, American hatred. Hope moved to China for the love of her husband, who is dedicated to the Chinese revolutions throughout the years, working for the many rebellions against Manchu rule, Mikhail Borodin and Chiang Kai-shek. Paul is torn between the love and traditional culture of his country, (in addition to freeing China from autocratic rule), and his American wife and children. This is a fascinating, historical novel. I am looking forward to reading more by Aimee E. Liu.

Read information about the authorAimee Liu is a best-selling novelist, essayist, and nonfiction author based in Los Angeles.
Her most recent book is GAINING: The Truth About Life After Eating Disorders, published by Warner Books, February, 2007. Drawing on her own history of anorexia as well as interviews with more than forty other former anorexics and bulimics, Liu picks up her exploration of recovery where she ended her acclaimed memoir of anorexia nervosa, SOLITAIRE (Harper & Row, 1979), at age twenty-five. Back then, she thought recovery meant eating well. Gaining proves that healthy nutrition is only a first step. True recovery requires a new understanding of the role that genetics, personality, relationships, and anxiety play in these disorders. Liu uses cutting edge research to dispel the myth that fashion is to blame. She examines the real reasons eating disorders -- at all ages -- are on the rise, and how they can be prevented in future generations.
Aimee Liu also is a novelist. FLASH HOUSE (Warner Books, 2003) is a tale of suspense and Cold War intrigue set in Central Asia. CLOUD MOUNTAIN (Warner Books, 1997) is based on the true story of her American grandmother and Chinese revolutionary grandfather. Liu’s first novel, FACE(Warner Books, 1994), deals with mixed-race identity. These books have been translated into more than a dozen languages.
