Paper Wife

Author : Laila Ibrahim

Genre : Fiction

When Mei Ling’s sister becomes ill, her parents switch daughters in an arranged marriage to a widower from California. To enter the country, she must pretend to be her husband’s first wife—a paper wife. Set in Southern China, 1923, Mai Ling must lie about who she is, not realizing that her husband-to-be is also lying about who he is. While crossing the ocean, Mei Ling becomes acquainted with an orphan girl names Siew. By the time she reaches San Francisco, she learns she is pregnant, and that her husband, Chinn Kai Li is a houseboy, not the successful merchant he said he was. How can their marriage survive based on lies?
