For every young Chinese woman in 1930s Shanghai, following the path of duty takes precedence over personal desires. For Feng, that means becoming the bride of a wealthy businessman in a marriage arranged by her parents. In the enclosed world of the Sang household - a place of public ceremony and private cruelty - fulfilling her duty means bearing a male heir. The life that has been forced on her makes Feng bitter and resentful, and she plots a terrible revenge. But with the passing years comes a reckoning, and Feng must reconcile herself with the sacrifices and terrible choices she has made in order to assure her place in the family and society - even as the violent, relentless tide of revolution engulfs her country. Both a sweeping historical novel and an intimate portrait of one woman's struggle against tradition, All the Flowers in Shanghai marks the debut of a sensitive and revelatory writer.
