Peacock Alley is the compelling story of Liah, a courageous Chinese immigrant wife and mother and her struggle to establish an ethnic community within early 20th Century Los Angeles where the Chinese inhabitants would be safe from the wanton persecution of the "White Devils" and where a traditional Chinese lifestyle could be preserved. Repeatedly driven from various homesteads by angry mobs and drunken gangs, Liah must overcome not only the challenge of raising her family from poverty but also the enormous challenge of creating and maintaining a de facto Chinatown government beset with both internal and external intrigues. The author has brilliantly crafted characters that will capture and maintain the reader's interest while providing a unique insight into both the Chinese psyche and culture.
