Dreams of Joy by Lisa See

See's 2009 novel, Shanghai Girls, introduced us to Pearl and May, sisters who traveled from the turbulent China of the 1930s to the strange and scarcely less turbulent city of Los Angeles. This sequel adds to the mix Pearl's 19-year-old daughter Joy, who makes the trip the other way — back to communist China in search of her father. 5/31
