They were the most famous sisters in China – Big Sister was Chiang Kai-shek’s unofficial main adviser and became one of China’s richest women, Little Sister married Chiang Kai-shek and became a major political figure in her own right and Red Sister rose to be Mao’s vice-chair. All enjoyed enormous privilege but also faced constant mortal danger. They remained emotionally close even when embracing opposing political camps and this biography is by turns intimate and epic in scope.
Following her internationally best selling Wild Swans, Mao and Empress Dowager Cixi, Jung Chang beautifully chronicles how the three Soong sisters from Shanghai rose to the centre of power and how each of them shaped twentieth century China.
