Message from An Unknown Chinese Mother (Paperback)

One would have to have a heart of stone not to be moved - The Economist

Ten Chapters, ten woman and many stories of heartbreak, including her own: Xinran once again takes us right into the live of Chinese women and their lost daughters. Whether as a consequnce of the single-child policy, destructive age-old traditions or hideous economic necessity, these woman had to give up their daughters for adoption, others were forced to abandon them - on city streets, outside hospitals, orphanges or on station platforms - and others even had to watch their baby daughters taken away at birth, and drowned.

Personal, immediate, full of sorrow but also full of hope, this book sends a heart-rending message to Chinese girls who have been adopted to show them how things really were for their mothers, and to tell them they were loved and will never be forgotten.

Harrowing and heartbreaking yet important tales - She
