Summary
  • During China's Cultural Revolution, Benfu survived the cruel years, but he did not emerge unscathed. The Scavenger's Daughters is the story of Benfu and his beloved wife Calli, chronicling their attempts to build a life in the turmoil and aftermath of Maoist China. At the heart of their struggle lies the pain of losing their only child. To fill the terrible hole in their lives, they take in abandoned girls; the unwanted "weeds" as their own, lovingly caring for them as flowers in a garden
  • With the bad memories of the Cultural Revolution behind them, Benfu and his treasured Calla Lily are content watching their six adopted daughters blossom. But when a clue to the whereabouts of the biological daughter they lost decades ago suddenly surfaces, they begin a frantic search to find their beloved Dahlia. Li Jin has lived thirty years at the mercy of cruel foster parents and a bleak orphanage, often surviving on the streets. But now that she has a son, she must try to make a better life for them-- even if it means withstanding the abuse of a seedy foreigner in exchange for a home. But when Erik's treatment turns truly sadistic, she must find a way to escape once and for all
