【內容介紹】回最上方
From the author of critically acclaimed and bestselling memoir Falling Leaves, this is a poignant and moving true account of her childhood, growing up as an unloved daughter in 1940s China.
 
A Chinese proverb says, “Falling leaves return to their roots.” In her own courageous voice, Adeline Yen Mah returns to her roots to tell the story of her painful childhood and her ultimate triumph in the face of despair. 
 
Adeline’s affluent, powerful family considers her bad luck after her mother dies giving birth to her, and life does not get any easier when her father remarries. Adeline and her siblings are subjected to the disdain of her stepmother, while her stepbrother and stepsister are spoiled with gifts and attention. Although Adeline wins prizes at school, they are not enough to compensate for what she really yearns for — the love and understanding of her family. Like the classic Cinderella story, this powerful memoir is a moving story of resilience and hope. 
 
Includes an Author’s Note, a 6-page photo insert, a historical note, and the Chinese text of the original Chinese Cinderella.



中國有一句成語:「落葉歸根。」中國版《灰姑娘》馬嚴君玲返鄉訴說孩童時期痛苦的遭遇、最後的勝利與面對絕境的勇氣。作者的家境富裕,也是當地的名門望族,然而因母親為生下她而死,家人認為她是個掃把星。父親再婚後君玲的人生並沒有更好過,繼母看不起她和其他手足,可是她同父異母的弟妹卻備受疼愛。儘管君玲在學校連連獲獎,這些榮耀卻無法彌補她心中的真正渴望――擁有家人的愛與了解。
