Summary
"In the turbulent years of the late 1930's on the China Coast, Jack Morgan, a powerful American business tycoon, and Ana Vukovna, a sensual and deep Russian jazz singer, meet as strangers and part as lovers on the night Shanghai burns and falls to the Japanese. Together they escape to Hong Kong, but when they arrive Anna simply vanishes. Jake is determined to find her, but hides his anguish from his fiancee. Half a century later Jardine Wo, a modern Chinese girl who makes a living jumping out of party cakes, lives with a hidden shame: her mother was a Jane Doe, struck dead on a Hong Kong street nearly thirty years earlier, infant daughter in her arms. Grown up now, Jardine has struggled to adjust to life with no family, when the extraordinary occurs and her world changes in the blink of an eye
