Denise Chong’s — The concubine’s children *****

This is a fascinating tale of Chan Sam, who left his wife in China to find gold in British Columbia. In Vancouver, he bought a concubine who worked in Chinatown to support both families.

This memoir gives a deep insight into the early lives of Chinese immigrants to Canada — the hard work they endured, the loneliness they faced, and the deep prejudice.
