About this bookExcerpt from The Yellow Pearl: A Story of the East and the West
Hana I am in this strange country about which I have learned in the geography and history, and about which I heard my father talk. The daughter of an American man and a Chinese woman, I suppose I am what is called a mongrel. My father was a Commissioner of Customs in China, and living for years in that country he fell in love with my mother and married her as was natural. Who could help falling in love with my dear, yellow, win some, little mother? My name is Mar garet, called after my father's mother; my father said that the word Margaret means a pearl, so he gave me the pet name Pear Dear father!
