Back Cover

“The Fortunes is the kind of book that raises far more questions than it resolves. Not only does it present a vast swathe of often-ignored history, in deftly fictionalized form, it’s an empathetic book, not just to its protagonists but to its secondary and tertiary characters and even, often, to its villains. It questions motivations, feelings, intentions, rarely certain despite the author’s fictional imperative. Sometimes I found myself wondering”—Huffington Post

Description

“A powerful novel that unflinchingly examines both the degrading lives of immigrants in the 1800s and the identity crises of modern mixes-race families. Throughout it all, Davies remains sympathetic to his heroes—although they have been all but lost in the flow of history, a deft hand can still pull them into prominence…The brilliance of The Fortunes is not that it expertly dissects Chinese American-ness–or American-ness, for that matter. Davies has conjured a book that forces its readers to find the pressures they face in their own lives, to see how the struggle of self-identity and one’s place in the world is alive in each and every one of us."—Shelf Awareness

“Absorbing."—New York Daily News, “7 books to read in September"

“The book is more than the sum of its parts, and Davies (the son of Welsh and Chinese parents) achieves an extraordinary novelistic intimacy against backdrops of historical vibrancy. Moreover, he considers what it means to be identified with, but not now belong to, an ancestral culture one can’t escape or fully embrace — in an immigrant society that promises but doesn’t deliver full racial inclusion." —Seattle Times

Editorial Review

"Colleen Hoover reminds readers that love is a fragile thing, built from courage, hope, and tears. Every person with a heartbeat should read this book."  (Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author). He is constantly in fights and sometimes he wins through some skill or by luck, but you never seem to know when it is one or the other. Definitely not worth $9.99, and will not buy the others until the price is reduced.
