Roma: Elliot, 2009. Traduzione di Aulino F. Roma, 2009; br., pp. 533, cm 14x21. (Raggi). Attraverso le vicissitudini di cinque generazioni di donne, questa indimenticabile saga familiare è anche il racconto di cento anni di storia della Cina, dagli ultimi fasti della dinastia Qing fino alla strage di piazza Tienanmen. Ne è protagonista Yu, la cui vita è indissolubilmente intrecciata a quella delle donne della sua famiglia: la nonna, la madre, le due sorelle e la nipote, figure forti, volitive, appassionate. Al contrario, la fragile personalità di Yu viene duramente segnata dal rifiuto che i genitori le dimostrano fin da piccola e che la spinge a macchiarsi di un peccato imperdonabile. Allontanata dalla propria casa, viene spedita a vivere in città per essere ben presto abbandonata a se stessa. Sola ma determinata, da quel momento Yu vive nella continua ricerca dell'amore e del perdono, in uno struggente percorso di espiazione e desiderio di libertà che sembrano essere a portata di mano proprio nel momento in cui il paese viene travolto dalla tempesta politica di fine anni Ottanta.
