far-sideHistorical fiction about a Viennese surgeon who escapes Austria soon after Kristellnacht and resettles with other Jewish refugees in war-time Shanghai. The book focuses upon the conflicts between the established Jewish community and the refugees, between the Chinese natives and the Japanese invaders, between the German anti-semites and their Japanese allies, and within disparate elements of Chinese society. The challenges to survival in a war-time environment and an unlikely love story form the backdrop to this engrossing tale.
