After his father's death, Michael Tang finds a letter sent to his dad from a long-ago friend in China. Without a word to his mother or sister, he decides to make the long journey to a remote part of that enormous country. Once there, he begins to learn about the man his father once was, and how long-ago choices continue to echo throughout all of their lives.
Michael’s sister Emily is an immigration lawyer living in Manhattan and married to a white American. Her only connections to China are her family and her work. But when a case ends horribly she starts to question the choices she’s made. Their mother, Ling, worries that she's somehow driven her children away.
Though they are living the lives Ling and her husband sacrificed so much to give them, all three must decide where their happiness truly lies.

In this collection of his best works, including speeches, essays, and commentaries, Theodore Roosevelt's complex personality and captivating writing style emerge as readers travel through his incredible life from his days as a Rough Rider in Cuba, through his political career and rise to the presidency, to his life after the White House as hunter, explorer, and naturalist. Roosevelt was a conservationist and an avid hunter, a racist and an egalitarian, a militarist and a Nobel prizewinner for peace, a conservative and a leader for progressive reform - his convictions, prejudices, and paradoxes were the embodiment of an American mind. This excellent selection of his writings, along with a concise biography, offers a true understanding of that mind - and of the ideals, values, and beliefs that animated his thinking and still influence American thought today.
