Shanghai Girls by Lisa See
Sisters May and Pearl live in Shanghai, China in the mid-1930s--a time of glamour and wealth for their city. However, their once wealthy family is near bankruptcy, so they are matched in arranged marriages to Gold Mountain men who have come from California to find brides. Traveling to America, they find life there harsh and the situation is made worse by Pearl's unexpected pregnancy as a result of a shipboard romance. It's a secret both women vow to keep for the remainder of their lives.
