This family memoir, co-authored with my father, is the story of how my grandmother, Ruth Mei-en Ts’ao Chai, saved the family in China during World War II.
It is also our search to understand her decision at the end of her life to be buried alone rather in the plots that she and my grandfather had purchased together decades earlier.
