Sisters by Simon Johnston
In 1936, old Russia is in new China. Two exiled Russian sisters live in a garrison town where their deceased father used to train Nationalist Chinese troops. As the sisters struggle to maintain the illusion of their former lives, Natasha the young Chinese sister-in-law, takes over the house - one room at a time.
