About this product
- DescriptionAlong with the suspense and pacing, this book's power comes from its lack of melodrama. Missing math homework, spelling bees, birthday parties, and other childhood events create a backdrop for the vel's themes of repentance and forgiveness, intercultural tolerance, and loyalty among family and friends. Wong did t feel the need to spice up the vel with more dramatic events, which keeps Su-Ling's Treasure realistic and more easily relatable by exploring serious themes within the simple, ordinary setting. Also she demonstrates how much one can grow and learn through ordinary life, how even average events can spark transformation. -Cristina Deptula, Synchronized Chaos Su-Ling's Treasure, Ina Wong's first vel, reflects her own struggles as a young newcomer in America. Born in Taiwan in 1950, Ina came to America with her family at the age of ten. She didn't even kw the English alphabet at that time. With the help of Mrs. Alva Ward, a kind teacher who taught her to read, Ina developed a love for literature and late majored in English at UCLA and UC Berkeley. A dedicated children's worker, Ina has been reaching and teaching children for more than 30 years. A gifted storyteller, she skillfully integrates the greatest story into her plot as her protagonist's spiritual journey advances. Ina is the mother of two grown children, Joy and John. She lives in Berkeley, California, with her husband Sik-Lam, their son John, and John's dog Cocoa, a golden retriever who rarely retrieves, but is still golden.
