Ever since Lola died Clara and her family have been in a black hole of mourning. But when Clara finds a note in a purse from China she finds a purpose. Somehow she feels she needs to save Yuming, a girl who was kidnapped and forced to work in a purse factory in China.
Told in alternating chapters this story tells of Clara's attempts to save Yuming and come to terms with the loss of her sister while Yuming is struggling to escape the factory and reunite with her family.
The book was pretty good. I liked the premise. I was worried about halfway through that the plot would play out too perfectly but while there were certainly some near misses and contrived coincidences the author did not take the easy way out at the end.
