Description
 
This story begins at the turn of the 19th century in South China where Yenyee & her family live. One night, her fisherman father vanishes in a ferocious storm at sea. But it is not only her father that she suddenly loses that day. Yenyee also feels betrayed by the ocean, a friend she has trusted all her life, & betrayed by her family who then send her across the Pacific to the New World to be a servant. In this poignant story, two worlds -- China & North America -- come together. Inspired by the Yip Sang collection held by the Vancouver Museum, Canadian author Paul Yee, who was raised in Vancouver, takes the reader on a magical voyage of love & forgiveness, of bravery & community. Vividly illustrated by Grace Lin.
