Rabbit in the Moon
By: Deborah and Joel Shlian
San Francisco, 1989: Forty years after Mao and his People’s Liberation Army set poised to change China forever, Dr. Lili Quan prepares for a journey that will change her life forever. In her 27 years, Lili had rarely thought of herself as anything but a perfect American. But to honor her mother’s dying wish that Lili return home, Lili reluctantly sets out for China.
For Lili, a passionate idealist, this will be an extraordinary trip filled with remarkable discoveries from meeting and falling in love with Chi-Wen Zhou, a victim of the Cutural Revolution and zealous Taoist, to finding Dr. Ni-Fu Cheng, the grandfather Lili believed had died years ago. But Dr. Cheng has made the most remarkable discovery of all: he’s discovered the secret to long life.
As Dr. Cheng’s only relative, Lili’s life is in jeopardy. As greedy and unscrupulous men vie for control of the most earth-shattering discovery of the century, Lili Quan could become a pawn in a deadly and dangerous international game.
A rich tapestry of suspense, intrigue, and discovery, Rabbit in the Moon is a moving and miraculous story about finding home, and finding hope.
