“but the island was still cloaked in that blue-black moment before dark that felt in equal parts like a quiet sigh and a pounding heart.”

A beautiful yet shocking story based on true events. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 drove thousands of Chinese immigrants from their homes in urban areas of the U. S. This moving love story, although overly sentimental at times, sheds light on a piece of history that needs to be told. Narrated in parallel stories over one hundred years apart, the tales of two women become intertwined with a dark piece of history that finally becomes exposed. This was a very emotional read.
