The Concubine’s Children by Denise Chong
This documents the life of Denise Chong’s grandfather, Chan Sam; grandmother, May-ying; her mother, Hing (or Winnie, as she was known outside of Chinatown); her mother’s siblings, Ping, Nan, and Gok-leng; and half sibling, Yuen. Chan Sam had two wives, May-ying in Canada and Huangbo in China, dividing the family between Canada and China. Chong’s mother, Hing, only knew one of her siblings while growing up, Gok-leng. The Concubine’s Children documents the story of this family which spanned two continents, as well as the political, social, and cultural tensions in China and Canada, between 1848, when Chan Sam’s father, Chong’s great grandfather, first came to “Gold Mountain”, the nickname by which Chinese people knew North America, and 1987 when Chong and Hing first met the “China family”.
An utterly absorbing tale of lives lived. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Concubines-Children-Portrait-Family-Divided/dp/0140255141/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1387054611&sr=1-1&keywords=The+Concubines+children
