"Grade school teacher and aspiring author Peregrine Long sees a Chinese family on board a ship--in his morning tea. The image inspires him to write the story of this family, but then a woman turns up at his door, claiming that he's writing her family history exactly as it happened. She doesn't like it, but she has one question: What happened to the little boy of the family, her long-lost uncle? Throughout the course of a month-long tempest that begins to wash the peninsula out from beneath them, Peregrine searches modern-day San Francisco and its surroundings--and, through his continued writing, southern China and the Pacific immigration experience of a century ago--for the missing boy. The clues uncovered lead Peregrine to question not only the nature of his writing, but also his knowledge of his own past and his understanding of his identity"-- Provided by publisher.

One of the best and most enjoyable books I've read in a long time. Very engaging, entertaining and thought-provoking, full of twists and turns that leaves you wondering what is real or not. Jason Buchholz expertly guides the reader into a story within a story based on historical fact that comes to life through mysterious and supernatural events. Highly recommended!
