Shirley Temple Wong sails from China to America with a heart full of dreams. Her new home is Brooklyn, New York. America is indeed a land full of wonders, but Shirley doesn't know any English, so it's hard to make friends. Then a miracle-baseball-happens. It is 1947, and Jackie Robinson, star of the Brooklyn Dodgers, is everyone's hero. Jackie Robinson is proving that a black man, the grandson of a slave, can make a difference in America and for Shirley as well, on the ball field and off, America becomes the land of opportunity
Spring Moon : a novel of China by Bette Lord( Book )

111 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 14 languages and held by 3,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story begins in the fifth year of the reign of the Emperor Kuang Hsu, 1892, in the courtyards of the House of Chang in Soochow, as the slave girl of the child Spring Moon achieves a terrible revenge against the clan. It ends in the early 1970s when, though the moon gates and fan gates of the courts are gone, five generations of clansmen gather at the site of the family graves to perform the ceremonies that for thousands of years have linked China's past with her present and both with the future. During the intervening years, each according to his destiny, the clansmen play their parts: Spring Moon and her Eldest Uncle, the scholar-poet bold Talent, Patriarch of the House of Chang; her Young Uncle, the soldier Noble Talent; her husband, glad Promise, who is a stranger on their wedding night; her daughter Lustrous Jade; August Winds, the orphan son of poor relations; the servant Fatso - and many others. At the center is Spring Moon. She lives with us from the first page, and it is through her that China's eternal drama and values are revealed. Not since DR. ZHIVAGO has a work of fiction so movingly portrayed the human spirit in times of civil war and social change."--Jacket
