Following her internationally bestselling book The Good Women of China, Xinran has written one of the most powerful accounts of the lives of Chinese women. She has gained entrance to the most pained, secret chambers in the hearts of Chinese mothersstudents, successful businesswomen, midwives, peasantswho, whether as a consequence of the single-child policy, destructive age-old traditions, or hideous economic necessity, have given up their daughters. Xinran beautifully portrays the extra-birth guerrillas who travel the roads and the railways, evading the system, trying to hold on to more than one baby; nave young girl students who have made life-wrecking mistakes; the pebble mother on the banks of the Yangtze River still looking into the depths for her stolen daughter; peasant women rejected by their families because they cant produce a male heir; and Little Snow, the orphaned baby fostered by Xinran but confiscated by the state. For parents of adopted Chinese children and for the children themselves, this is an indispensable, powerful, and intensely moving book. Message from an Unknown Chinese Mother is powered by love and by heartbreak and will stay with readers long after they have turned the final page.
