Vignettes from the Story
Here are some bits to give a flavor of some of the scenes portrayed in the book. These aided me in "seeing" the story as I was writing it.
Shu Wei's school in Sanhou, China (the town where he grew up)
flower vendor in San Francisco's Chinatown
some of the Occidental Home choir dressed up for a concert; a sampling of the music they sing is found on the Bejing Angellic Choir website: "Clear Moon, Quiet Winds," and "My Brother, Pu-Ru-Lai"
Donaldina Cameron (Grace Caldwell in the story) rescuing another girl
children in the streets of Chinatown
The shrine where Shu Wei prays along with Brian O'Grady, a turning point in the story
