Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Stunning Influence of Grandparents! If the power of the pen is to influence, and it is, this historical saga is a mighty sword! Beginning in 1860's revolutionary Chile, just before its separation from Spain in 1910, we travel to San Francisco, where Aurora, an orphan, is scooped up by the love of her grandparents. Her doting Chinese grandfather, Tao Chi'en, a physician, secretly rescues terrified Chinese children, transported in boat cages to be sex trafficked by evil exploiters in San Francisco's China town. Aurora's two strong grandmothers, Eliza and Pauline, honor their grandchild's life by being their unswerving, self-directed selves. Their powerful example guides Aurora's to claim her own hard-earned autonomy. Riveting, rewarding, and richly influential! Eleanor Cowan, Author of : A History of a Pedophile's Wife
