A Novel - Based On A True Story
Monique, the coddled, youngest child of an established French Jewish family, marries Mathieu, a doctor, and has three children in quick succession. She becomes overwhelmed with raising them, and her childless sister, Francine, offers to take Collete, the youngest, with her to Tientsin, China, where she lives in the French Concession with her husband, Marcel. It is a temporary arrangement. The offer is made from a genuine desire to help. So begins a heartrending saga, spanning continents, world war, and divergent paths.
Based on a true story, My Sister in China will hold you spellbound as it reveals the depths of a mother’s heart and the true capacity for forgiveness.
