This eye-opening novel is about modern China's countryside and the pressing problems faced by hundreds of millions of people living in rural China. To the City tells of the difficult journey made by Song Jiayin, a woman who tries very hard to build her dream home in the city, but after many defeats and frustrations that end in gloom, she finally concludes that the city belongs to the "city folks." Set in modern China, this honest portrayal about Song Jiayin's life and her struggle to escape the countryside and live in the city takes her from her wedding day to the day she dies, with her children continuing on to reach her dream in their own "journey to the city."
