       Additional Information  
      Are ghosts really time travelers? Can the past cross into the future? Based on real-life accounts and the theories of Albert Einstein, Tan takes the mind-bending premise that time is an illusion and turns it into thought-provoking fiction. When young Ling sees a Chinese opera maiden who died tragically years before, her Uncle Wang moves into the house to research this phenomenon on the crossing of times. As he and Ling continue to investigate, an amazing story of love and revenge unfolds. But this is not the only story in this extraordinary book. A man and his wife see their daughters in wonder, knowing their girls are sequestered in a convent and forbidden to see their parents. Tang Beautiful-moon cavorts with a married man and is about to be disfigured by a gang, revenge by her wife, when a figure from another time appears and stops it. Heartbreaking, heartwarming, and infinitely moving. You’ll never look at ghosts-or time-the same way again
