Summary "A moving, lovely cri de coeur from a father, whose daughter has moved to another country. The sense of loss and dislocation is countered by acceptance of the child's need to move away, grow up and become herself. This book would have great resonance in the Chinese diaspora--but also in any diaspora. The loss that is entailed in leaving home, while at the same time the recognition of why it is sometimes necessary is beautifully and lovingly portrayed. This book is especially timely now when so many families are forced to be apart even on traditionally essential family festivals."-- Provided by publisher
