One morning, Silk Fan, a happily married woman and mother of two, stops to help an old woman by the riverside. Within moments, she finds herself in a life-changing nightmare. She is kidnapped and taken miles away, along with four other young women, all merely schoolgirls. Only Silk Fan knows of the horror to befall them-they will become wives, slaves bought by mothers for single sons in a rural community, where nobody will help them for fear of the consequences. As the women settle into their new, unwanted lives, they deal with intense grief and hatred for their captors. But over time, their friendship with an old Han widow and a newly kidnapped bride will lead them to the key to survival-China's Hope. What will become of the women whose lives have been forever altered? Will Silk Fan ever see her family again? What is China's Hope?
