This new novel from the author of Thousand Pieces of Gold reclaims a lost figure of Chinese-American history, Lue Gim Gong, who put his genius for plants to work in Florida, creating the orange hybrids that earned him international renown as a "plant wizard." Lue's story is told by three women in his life, his mother, a friend and a co-worker.
