A riveting journey to save one life
In a tale of passion and rescue, an abandoned Chinese infant drives an unwitting pop star a to become formidable heroine.
While American music icon Nola Sands is on a goodwill concert tour in China, a baby is thrust into her arms. Nola’s well-orchestrated life is thrown out of orbit as she bonds with the infant against her husband-manager’s plans. She resolves to save the baby from death in the dumping ground of China’s orphanages—only to find herself on a collision course with her record label company’s business interests in the vast new market. Worse, two superpowers, the U.S. and China's governments, are determined to silence her.
In a stunning story that begins with passion and ends with triumph of an adoptive parent’s unwavering love, Nola's flight across China is a tale not only of human rights abuses running amok in an astonishingly picturesque land: it is the gripping self-discovery voyage of a woman coming into her own.
