Jung Chang is the author of Wild Swans which is one of the best books I've ever read. Now she's back with this true story of the three extraordinary Soong sisters, born in Shanghai, who lived their li... ves right at the centre of power. Two of them married incredibly influential and important men, but they all had a huge influence on modern China in their own right with Ei-ling, the eldest, becoming one of China's richest women and an unofficial adviser to Chiang Kai Shek. Ching-ling, (Red Sister), married Sun Yat-Sen, and later became Mao's vice-chair; and May-ling (the youngest) became Madame Chiang Kai-shek, and wielded enormous political influence. Their story spans the globe and - all true - there's intrigue, betrayal, war, politics and glamour. It's magnificent. - Joan
