Description: May, a young Chinese woman, suffers the brutal ritual of foot binding at the turn of the last century. The book follows May from a bad marriage to Shanghai, "the infamous city of danger and opportunity". May -- either despite or because of her foot's deformity -- is considered a woman of astonishing beauty. Her beauty, her fetishistically bound feet, and her quick mastery of a handful of languages earn her a pile of money and, finally, a Western husband.

May develops a close relationship with her husband's Jewish family, especially her unruly niece Alice. Harrison's scrupulously researched novel follows the two of them from Shanghai to London and back again, encountering along the way a colorful cast of women who've all suffered a disfigurement, mental or physical, that echoes May's. Finally several of the women come together in Nice, where each works out her destiny.
