In a powerful novel that captures the struggle of the immigrant experience, Wendy Lee explores one family’s hidden history and unspoken hurts, and the universal themes of identity, family, and finding a place to call home. 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.
Paths of Armor, first published in 1950, is the account of the historic 5th Armored Division from the time of its formation in October 1941, to the end of the war in May 1945. Because of the secrecy of its missions and the speed at which the men and equipment moved, the Division was also known as "Patton's Ghosts" (the Division was part of Patton's Third Army), and because of its many successes, as the "Victory Division." Following training in the U.S., the Division transferred to England, and landed on Utah Beach in Normandy on July 24, 1944.
Then followed months of combat as the Division moved across northern France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and into Germany. In December 1944, the Division took part in the fierce fighting in the Hurtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge. Included are more than 100 pages of photographs and maps and an appendix with key Division Staff and Unit Citations.
This pocket-sized resource includes more than 450 proverbs from the Word of God arranged by topic and need.
