    Inhaltsangabe

    They were the most famous sisters in China. As the country battled through 100 years of wars, revolutions, and seismic transformations, the three Soong sisters from Shanghai were at the center of power, and each of them left an indelible mark on history.

    Red Sister, Ching-ling, married the "Father of China", Sun Yat-sen, and rose to be Mao's vice-chair.

    Little Sister, May-ling, became Madame Chiang Kai-shek, first lady of pre-Communist Nationalist China and a major political figure in her own right. 

    Big Sister, Ei-ling, became Chiang's unofficial main adviser - and made herself one of China's richest women.

    All three sisters enjoyed tremendous privilege and glory, but also endured constant mortal danger. They showed great courage and experienced passionate love, as well as despair and heartbreak. They remained close emotionally, even when they embraced opposing political camps and Ching-ling dedicated herself to destroying her two sisters' worlds.

    Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister is a gripping story of love, war, intrigue, bravery, glamour, and betrayal, which takes us on a sweeping journey from Canton to Hawaii to New York, from exiles' quarters in Japan and Berlin to secret meeting rooms in Moscow, and from the compounds of the Communist elite in Beijing to the corridors of power in democratic Taiwan. In a group biography that is by turns intimate and epic, Jung Chang reveals the lives of three extraordinary women who helped shape 20th-century China.

    Well Worth It.

    Beautifully read by Catherine Ho. I wish she would do more audible audiobooks like this and Jung Chang's other big title Cixi. The story deserves its reputation, I cannot recommend it enough.
