As the fourth daughter of the Kwok Bews, a prestigious family in charge of the Wing On Department Store in Shanghai in the early 20th century, Daisy Kwok Bew was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. The social and political changes of the time, however, affected her life in ways she never could have foreseen. For more than three decades, this "princess" of Shanghai experienced severe depredation and loss, but she faced every trial with dignity. An enthralling tale of the resilience of the human spirit.
