The New York Times bestselling author of the beloved Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, returns with a much-anticipated second novel.
Set against the backdrop of Depression-era Seattle, Songs of Willow Frost is a powerful tale of a boy with dreams for his future and a woman escaping her haunted past. Twelve-year-old William Eng, a Chinese American boy, has lived at Seattle’s Sacred Heart Orphanage ever since his mother’s listless body was carried away from their apartment years ago. But, when William glimpses an actress on the silver screen who goes by the name of Willow Frost, William becomes convinced that the movie star is his mother, Liu Song.
“Ford is a first-rate novelist.”
“William’s journey is one you’ll savor, and then think about long after the book is closed. I loved it.”
