Jade Necklace, The
Paul Yee; illustrated by Grace Lin

8 x 10 1/4 • 32 pages • color illus.
ISBN 9781566564557 • hardback • $15.95

This story begins at the turn of the nineteenth century in South China where Yenyee and her family live. One night, her fisherman father vanishes in a ferocious storm at sea. But it is not only her father that she suddenly loses that day. Yenyee feels betrayed by the ocean, a friend she has trusted all her life, and betrayed by her family who then send her across the Pacific Ocean to the New World to be a servant.

In this poignant story, two worlds—China and North America—come together. Inspired by the Wing Sang collection at the Vancouver Museum, author Paul Yee takes the reader on a magical voyage of love and forgiveness, of bravery and community.
