Lisa See’s Novel Dreams of Joy is the sequel to her bestseller, Shanghai Girls. Picking up from Shanghai Girls, Joy leaves L.A. to find her Father living in Communist China. Joy doesn’t recognize the situation she has put herself in; Mao’s Great Leap Forward. Pearl, knowing she may never leave China again, reunites with Joy. Joy’s reluctance and Pearl’s steadfastness characterize the bonds between a mother and her daughter. Linda See also paints a historically accurate picture of Mao’s Great Leap forward and Chinese life in the late 1950’s.
