Remembering Shanghai by Isabel Sun Chao and Claire Chao Review

 Remembering Shanghai: A Memoir of Socialites, Scholars, and Scoundrels by Isabel Sun Chao and Claire Chao

A high position bestowed by China's empress dowager grants power and wealth to the Sun family. For Isabel, growing up in glamorous 1930s and '40s Shanghai, it is a life of utmost privilege. But while her scholar father and fashionable mother shelter her from civil war and Japanese occupation, they cannot shield the family forever.

When Mao comes to power, eighteen-year-old Isabel journeys to Hong Kong, not realizing that she will make it her home--and that she will never see her father again. Meanwhile, the family she has left behind struggles to survive, only to have their world shattered by the Cultural Revolution. Isabel returns to Shanghai fifty years later with her daughter, Claire, to confront their family's past--one they discover is filled with love and betrayal, kidnappers and concubines, glittering pleasure palaces and underworld crime bosses.

Lavishly illustrated and meticulously researched, Remembering Shanghai follows five generations from a hardscrabble village to vibrant Shanghai to the bright lights of Hong Kong. By turns harrowing and heartwarming, this vivid memoir explores identity, loss and the unpredictable nature of life against the epic backdrop of a nation and a people in turmoil.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- Sadness, pain, turmoil, love, beauty and strength and that is just in the first few chapters.  The book gives the reader a power from truth and a story that will take them on a journey of struggle with light at the end.  You must be prepared to cry and feel deeply, but then have a few bits of laughter brought in between.  By the end of the book there is a connection and sense of closure.

Cassandra's Review-  Insightful with an informational flow.   The author clearly has a knock for helping as well as guiding her readers towards a helpful and healthy uhnt for love.  I think that this book would be useful for someone looking to really find and bond with someone, more in a long term relationship but does help for the times when it might not work out. 

Adamant by Lisa Bevere Review

Adamant: Finding Truth in a Universe of Opinions by Lisa Bevere
By ancient definition, the adamant was known as both a diamond and a mythical stone of indestructible wonder. In more modern terminology, it describes a posture of unshakeable resolve and determination. If there was ever a time for us to be adamant about love and truth it is now. God is Love. God is Truth. Both love and truth are timeless, transcending our current trends and opinions. Sometimes the most loving thing we will ever do is to speak the truth, but speaking truth begins with living it.

Using the mediums of Scripture and story, New York Times bestselling author Lisa Bevere takes readers on a journey into the Mountain of God, to the one place they can learn not only to abide in God's unshakable truth and love, but become adamant--people who are unmovable, determined, and steadfast. With conviction and passion, Lisa unpacks the concept of the adamant for readers, linking together the grand story of Scripture and God's purpose in their lives. Readers will see that God's plan is revealed as we dwell in him, it is there that we are forged and shaped. As we abide in Christ our Cornerstone we are shaped into the image of the adamant.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  A book with a deeper meaning laced into the seams.  It is the author who writes in the style of her truth and own opinions, but can include fact in places as well. Like a hodgepodge topic that she would want you to believe and explore, but given to the reader in the structure of guidance towards the mindset of the author.
