The Girl Who Wrote in Silk

(2015)
A novel by

 
Washed up on Orcas Island in 1886, Mei Lien is the lone survivor of a cruel purge of the Chinese from Seattle. She is determined to tell her heartbreaking story the only way she knows how: by embroidering it on silk. Years later, Inara Erickson explores her family's estate on Orcas Island, and finds a perfectly preserved and meticulously detailed embroidered silk sleeve hidden under a loose tread on the stairs. Inara's research leads her to a shameful discovery that could destroy her family and finds herself facing a terrible choice: bring dishonor to her family by telling the truth, or tell no one and dishonor Mei Lien, the brave young woman to whom she feels so connected.
