Message From An Unknown Chinese Motherby Xinran$37.99 Chatto & Windus
Ten women, including Xinran herself, tell the stories of daughters they have lost: given up or abandoned because of harsh economic conditions or boy-favouring traditions, or seized by the state as a result of China's one-child policy. The adoptive mothers of some of these children in other countries also contribute their experiences. The book is Xinran's message to Little Snow - an orphaned baby she adopted whom she was later forced to give up - and to others like her: that their mothers did love them and will never forget them.
