The Fire Horse Girl Kay Honeyman

Book Giveaway

CLOSED

Jade Moon is a Fire Horse

 

the worst sign in the Chinese zodiac for girls, said to make them stubborn, willful, and far too imaginative.

 

Then a young man named Sterling Promise comes to their village to offer Jade Moon and her father a chance to go to America.

 

While Sterling Promise's smooth manners couldn't be more different from her own impulsive nature, Jade Moon falls in love with him on the long voyage.

 

But America in 1923 doesn't want to admit many Chinese, and when they are detained at Angel Island, she discovers a betrayal that destroys her dreams.

 

To get into America, much less survive there, Jade Moon will have to use all her stubbornness and will to break a new path . . . one as brave and dangerous as only a Fire Horse girl can imagine.
