Buchbeschreibung Harper Collins Publ. USA Jul 2014, 2014. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 203x134x40 mm. Neuware - Moving between the glittering world of courtesans in turn of the century Shanghai, a remote Chinese mountain village, and the rough-hewn streets of 19th century San Francisco, Amy Tans sweeping new novel maps the lives of three generations of women connected by blood and history - and the mystery of an evocative painting known as The Valley of Amazement. Violet is one of the most celebrated courtesans in Shanghai, a beautiful and intelligent woman who has honed her ability to become any mans fantasy since her start as a Virgin Courtesan at the age of twelve. Half-Chinese and half-American, she moves effortlessly between the east and the west. But her talents belie her private struggle to understand who she really is and her search for a home in the world. Abandoned by her mother, Lucia, and uncertain of her fathers identity, Violets quest to truly love and be loved will set her on a path fraught with danger and complexity - and the loss of her own daughter. Lucia, a willful and wild American woman who was once herself the proprietress of Shanghais most exclusive courtesan house, nurses her own secret wounds, which she first sustained when, as a teenager, she fell in love with a Chinese painter and followed him from San Francisco to Shanghai. Her search for penance and redemption will bring her to a startling reunion with Flora, Violets daughter, and will undo all that Violet believed she knew about her mother. 608 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780062107329
