About the Book

Peach Blossom Spring

A "beautifully rendered" novel about war, migration, and the power of telling our stories, PEACH BLOSSOM SPRING follows three generations of a Chinese family on their search for a place to call home (Georgia Hunter, New York Times bestselling author).

A country at war. A family searching for home.

China, 1938. Meilin and her four-year-old son, Renshu, flee their burning city as Japanese forces advance. On the perilous journey that follows, across a China transformed by war, they find comfort and wisdom in their most treasured possession, a beautifully illustrated hand scroll filled with ancient fables.

Years later, Renshu has settled in America as Henry Dao. Though his daughter, Lily, is desperate to understand her heritage, he refuses to talk about his childhood in China. How can he tell his story when he's left so much behind?

Spanning continents and generations, PEACH BLOSSOM SPRING is a bold and moving story about the haunting power of our past, the sacrifices we make to protect our children, and one family's search for a place to call home.
