It is based on true occurrences which happened to Chang herself, her mother and grandmother. It provides insight into the life and experiences of women in this dynamic era.

From the Paper:

"The book begins by giving the reader a view and insight into life in China in the 1920's through the simple device of narrating Chang's grandmother's experiences as a concubine to a powerful Chinese warlord and the story of her eventual escape. From the 1920's through to the 1960's, the history of early 20th century China and Communist China under Mao unfolds as Chang continues on her quest to chronicle the life and times of three generations of her own family. The 1940's, 50's and 60's act as a setting to the life story of Chang's mother."
