Taiwan Bookstore: Penghu Moon in the Well

Louise Lee-Hsiu

In 1985, the Ching Dynasty was forced to sign the Treaty of Shimonoseki, ceding Taiwan and Penghu to Japan – this historic event forms the background of Penghu Moon in the Well. Lee Lian-Zi, who embodies the author Louise Lee-Hsiu, narrates the lives of four generations of two Penghu families through tales of tragic epics and the loving bonds that sustain families.

Award-winning Taiwanese author Louise Lee-Hsiu had published ten books in Taiwan before moving to Canada in 2002. Because she wants more English-speaking people to understand her home country Taiwan, she has translated Penghu Moon in the Well from its original Chinese to English.
