by Author Madeline Sloane:
Land of Hope is a layered tale told with finesse. It’s also a story of love left behind in the quest for success. Author Junying Kirk has the expertise and the experience to understand and explain the quandary of the Chinese immigrant living illegally in the U.K. Her characters are gripping; their lives are fascinating; their fates are poignant, and Kirk is bold enough to look behind the veil of official assurances and false smiles, and reveal the cultural divide: “Better the devil you know than the devil you don't.” The book will intrigue and haunt you as you discover what millions of people are willing to do to live in the Land of Hope.
