Summary
Immersed in the heat and colours of 1960s Hong Kong, shimmering between sea and sky, this is a world of fishermen and plotting insurgents, temple gods and ghosts, of blinding light and dark, dark waters. Frankie is a tearaway, putting out for boys and men in a defiant attempt to win her parents' attention. An ordinary teenager in many ways, in an extraordinary setting: the threat of communist China bubbles at the borders and the carnage in Vietnam that calls her father back time and again, like a moth to a flame. While Frankie's behaviour becomes ever more outrageous, her reticent sister, Kate, retreats into a quiet desperation. When she does act, she endangers all to save just one soul - Frankie's
Summary
The children of a war-photographer father and beautiful but remote mother, Frankie and Kate, two American sisters, grow up in Hong Kong during the turmoil of the Maoist revolution of the late 1960s
