About the Book
“Like a cat, I feel that I have lived through many lives—none of them sheltered. I’ve never had it easy, but then, I am not one to take the easy way out and I do not give up too easily. Actually, I have had more than my fair share of living, and what I have been through is not for the faint of heart. I am one of those who thrive in adverse conditions; it is then I unleash my built-in strength.”
Marie Chung is the granddaughter of a concubine. She grew up in Hong Kong until she was a young adult and immigrated to Canada. Her fascinating story follows her travels throughout Canada, the tragedies and adversities she endured, and the triumphs and memories she cherishes.
Life of the Concubine’s Granddaughter is an intimate, captivating memoir that recounts a remarkable life and shows us what strength, resilience, courage, and a positive outlook on life can really do.
