The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane
“There was one girl who summed it up for me when she said, ‘I know I’m lucky and I know my parents love me and I know I’m the most precious person in our family, but I wasn’t precious enough for my birth parents to keep.’” Lisa See's new novel 'The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane' explores the story of a girl who is born in China and adopted by parents in the US, and of her birth mother in Yunnan Province. In researching this novel, Lisa See interviewed many adoptees. You can meet Lisa See and hear about this novel March 30 in Chappaqua.
