Summary
"In a remote Chinese mountain village, Liyan and her family align their lives around the farming of tea. Life goes on as it has for generations--until a stranger appears, bringing the modern world to the lives of the Akha people. Li-yan, one of the few educated girls on her mountain, begins to reject customs that shaped her early life. When she has a baby out of wedlock, she leaves her near an orphanage. While Li-yan leaves her village for an education, a business, and city life, her daughter, Haley. is raised in California by loving adoptive parents. Haley wonders about her origins and i-yan longs for her lost daughter"--Page [4] of cover
