BOOK DESCRIPTION

Willow Leaf, Maple Leaf . . . is a novel that weaves fantasy and cultural myth into a story about immigration, moral and sexual dilemmas, and cultural and gender barriers.

Willow Leaf is a dazzlingly beautiful Chinese woman who is smuggled to Vancouver, Canada. While working at a factory and at a massage parlor?aand through several extramarital affairs?aWillow Leaf realizes that survival in a different country might mean a compromise of morals. When her husband visits her, she realizes that he is not as she remembers him. He, in turn, refuses the money she offers him and her request for him to move their family to Canada, and returns to China alone. Eventually, Willow Leaf finds new wealth and new love with an elderly man and has her own successful business. But can Willow Leaf truly leave her love for her family and China behind?
