This is the fourth book in Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters.
As was learned in the previous book, life in Beijing is difficult. When Mari's husband has a back injury which has him turn to pain-killers, and then become addicted to them, she is made to take tourists pictures on the Great Wall. She is hired by an American photojournalist as a translator and guide, but then she is faced by tragedy.
There are also two girls who were kidnapped by an adult syndicate. They are given the choice to beg on the street or to be beaten and starved. When the older girl breaks her leg trying to escape, the younger one has to find help.
Thank you Kay Bratt for another beautiful, touching book. I feel like my life is turned around with each book.
I was given this book by NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
