Explores the lives of Dr. Franz Adler and his wife Sunny, who're forced in 1943 China to relocate to a one-square-kilometer called Shanghai Ghetto, where heat, hunger, and tropical diseases are constant threats. But the ghetto also breeds miraculous resilience: music, theater, sports, and Jewish culture thrive despite what are at times subhuman conditions.

Loved this trilogy of life in Shanghai during WWII. Riveting story, throughly enjoyed the story and the history lesson. I had no idea this even happened in Shanghai. Too bad the third one is not available from WCLS system. I had to get it from the library in Canada.

Was so looking forward to this sequel, and made allowances for the rehash of the plot from the Far Side of the Sky, but I just could not get interested in this one. Pity!
