Abstract:

A story of emotional depth and truth."'Lisa See, author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan "Will keep readers spellbound and cheering to the final page."'Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, author of Farewell to Manzanar "I love God of Luck."'Da Chen, author of Brothers Ah Lung and his beloved wife, Bo See, are separated by cruel fate when, like thousands of other Chinese men in the nineteenth century, he is kidnapped, enslaved, and shipped to the deadly guano mines off the coast of Peru. Praying to the God of Luck and using their own wits, they never lose hope of someday being reunited. Ruthanne Lum McCunn, of Scottish and Chinese ancestry, is the author of the classic Thousand Pieces of Gold, The Moon Pearl, and Wooden Fish Songs. God of Luck was a Book Sense Pick. She lives in San Francisco. From the Trade Paperback edition.
