An overseas Chinese woman confronts her past, seeking the origins of the insecurity that now besets her. The clues lead backwards, to her family and to China, to a past that is both obsession and legacy. She is now something of a foreigner even to herself foreign culture, foreign children, foreign home. An affecting and unusual story about the quest for identity, this is the only Renditions title originally written in English - a borrowed tongue.

'A touching story about a woman protagonist's struggle to discover her identity among the different values that have been established for her.'  -- World Literature Today
