|Summary:|| Sold into prostitution by her uncle in 1913, 14-year-old Xiuquing struggles to survive in a Shanghai brothel. Her fortunes improve when she catches the eye of wealthy official Pan Zanhua, who buys her freedom, makes her his concubine, and teaches her about art. Finding her vocation as a painter, Xiuquing--now Pan Yuliang--enrolls in Shanghai's art academy and even wins a scholarship to study in Europe. But her controversial portraits of nudes come under fire from China's conservative cultural establishment, and as the threat of war with Japan looms, Pan Yuliang must choose between her country and her art. Based on a true story, this novel is "captivating to the last line" (Publishers Weekly).
