White Gardenia Summary

White Gardenia by Belinda Alexandra

A sweeping story of mothers and daughters, set against a grand canvas of post-revolutionary Russia, early Communist China, the south seas and contemporary Australia Beginning in a small village on the Chinese--Russian border in the final days of World War II, this novel tells the story of a mother and daughter separated by war. In a district of the city of Harbin, a haven for White Russian families since Russia's Communist revolution, Alina Kozlova must make a heartbreaking decision if her only child, Anya, is to live. 'White Gardenia' sweeps across cultures and continents, from the glamorous, decadent Shanghai to the harshness of Cold War Soviet Russia in the 1960s, from a desolate island in the Pacific Ocean to a new life in post-war Australia. Both mother and daughter must make sacrifices, but is the price of survival too high? And will they ever find each other again?
