Here's a blurb from the author:
Journey across the Four Seas is a true story of my mother’s life. While caring for her in her last years, I recorded her life stories and wove them into a memoir. It was my way of thanking her for all that she’d done for me. The book is about her struggle to get an education for herself and later for her children. For the sake of their education, she was willing to emigrate from China to the U.S. Because of her, my siblings and I are living out the American dream.
