“Gripping, convincing, and heartbreaking, Dreams of the Red Phoenix is powerfully
evocative of the complexities of life in 1930s China. A real page-turner and thought-
provoker—wonderful.”

GISH JEN

“There’s a comparison to Ballard’s Empire
of the Sun
, but this unflinching look at a
brutal era in a faraway place shares truth in
its own way.”

Taking her grandmother’s life as inspiration, the author of the critically acclaimed River of Dust returns with a story set in the dangerous summer of 1937. Widowed American missionary and now single mother Shirley Carson finds herself caught up in the Japanese invasion of North China and the rise of Communism. At first, she finds renewed purpose helping the injured. But as the Japanese take their village, a charismatic Red Army officer requests her help for his soldiers. As other Americans make plans to flee, Shirley must choose: between helping the Chinese Reds by serving as a nurse or escaping the war-ravaged country with her teenage son before it’s too late.
