A poor Japanese girl overcomes great obstacles to achieve success. Sold into prostitution in 1931 to pay her father's debts, Yuki Nakamura escapes and ends up as a translator in the American consulate in Shanghai. Two men play prominent roles in her life: American diplomat Sam Cummings jeopardizes his career by acknowledging paternity of Yuki's daughter, Dawn; Japanese Colonel Ito sets her up in business and later takes her along to Manchuria. After World War II, Yuki and Dawn become successful Tokyo fashion designers. Adventure and intrigue make this novel enjoyable
