The Broken Shoe by Vicki J. Zhang
Inspired by true events. A young Chinese woman has been "quarantined" for months after her childbirth. She goes down the memory lane - her years of wrestling with the traditional womanhood near Confucius' hometown. Once with lofty career aspirations, she strove for success until life threw her into a downward spiral. Is she getting out of this forced quarantine, or is the sinister force closing in on her?
