Catriona's War - Jean Grainger - A Short Summary and Review

The Last Rose of Shanghai - Weina Dai Randel - A Short Summary and Review

 


A short summary of The Last Rose of Shanghai:

A nightclub owner navigates the nosedive Shanghai took during WWII.

My favorite Weina Dai Randel quote from the book:

"A courteous tiger is still a tiger."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What sacrifices have you made for your family?

Where have you failed?

My thoughts about the book:

A great story from a seldom mentioned corner of WWII

Full of twists, turns, and tumbles.

WWII was such a terrible time. Worldwide.
