In the early 1930s Sau-Ping, a village woman in South China, went through an arranged marriage with a man who emigrated to Canada. She was prevented from joining him by the racist Chinese Canadian Immigration (Exclusion) Act — which prohibited the families of Chinese labourers working in Canada from entering the country. Using the true stories of Chinese women … Woon has created a riveting fictional account of their experiences, told through the character of Sau-Ping.
