Product description

'How could a mother forget? How could a mother leave her child behind? William Eng, a Chinese-American boy, has lived at Seattle's Sacred Heart Orphanage for five long years. Ever since his mother's listless body was carried from their Chinatown apartment, William has been wondering what happened to her. So when, during a trip to the movie theatre, William glimpses an actress on the silver screen, he is immediately struck by her features. Because Willow Frost is many things - a singer, a dancer, a movie star - but most of all, William is convinced, she is his mother. Determined to find her, William attempts to confront the mysteries of his past and his connection to the exotic film star. But the story of Willow Frost is far more complicated than any Hollywood fantasy ...'

Review quote

Praise for Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: 'Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is very special...It is a superb love story, an emotional weepy with lots of heart, a lovely, lovely book.'Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller 'The book has been a big 'word of mouth' seller, and it is easy to see why... A thoroughly enjoyable novel with strong characters and something important to say. Very much recommended.'Historical Novels Review 'Ford deftly pulls off a Hollywood-worthy romance from the files, one anchored to a true event...Ford has a keen eye for the difficulties of youth and the struggles inherent in a cultural hot-pot. This is an entertaining and often illuminating tale that no doubt will be appearing at a cinema near you soon.'The Spectator
