Toyo by Lily Chan - Book Review

Toyo by Lily Chan

This is a beautifully written story of Lily's grandmother. Lily Chan has written this story of a woman who was caught between worlds of war and races in such a beautiful way. She swirls around with poetic language and style in a way that we are taken into the dance of Toyo's life. There are many unexpected moments throughout. While telling the story of Toyo, Lily also tells us a story of the history of the Chinese Japanese people and the difficulties that they faced. We are also given an insight into lives during the war, the rebuilding of lives afterward and then an insight into immigration.
