Lillian Ho loves her father dearly--he's kind, gentle, strong, a man of integrity greatly respected in Vancouver's Chinatown. But in 1909 China itself is violently divided between supporters of the Empire and Revolutionaries who seek to overturn it, and no one can afford to remain neutral-- not even those who have crossed the Pacific Ocean to Canada.
When her father mysteriously disappears, Lillian fears the worst. And the worst is not long in coming: soon her swaggering, scheming Third Uncle arrives to sell the family business and to take Lillian, her mothers and sisters back to China--a land she's never seen. Lillian knows she much search for her father to thwart her Uncle's plans, and sets off for the mountains to find him. What she finds is more terrible than she could have anticipated--and more dangerous.
The Curses of the Third Uncle is the story of a courageous young woman's fight to hold onto her family and her home in the face of tragedy and upheaval.
