Rabbit in the Moon is the story of American-born-and-proud Lili Quan - a young medical doctor, passionately strong in her convictions and views on life. She's also stubbornly avoiding a heritage she'd rather not identify with. But when two completely different cultures and secret political agendas collide, she slowly learns that her overall importance in a whirlwind of seemingly unconnected events cannot even begin to be imagined. It's an east vs. west, old vs. young, democratic vs. communistic, yin vs. yang struggle for an elusive secret with unlimited and priceless potential. One that men...and even governments...are willing to kill for... Set against the most tumultuous 7 weeks in recent Chinese history from the rise of the democracy movement in April to its fall with the June 4th massacre in Tiananmen Square, this novel is perfect for book clubs and reading groups.
