Stretching from mid-century China to both coasts of the United States at the turn of the millennium, Beautiful as Yesterday tells the powerful and captivating story of three Chinese women from the same family. It is a penetrating exploration of what it means to belong, what it means to be a family, and the impact of history and memories on one's life.

"A delicate and brilliant novel on the arguments, triumphs, loves and differences of a Chinese family in America."-- Xinran, author of China Witness and Good Women of China
