"Rabbit in the Moon"

Coming in June from Oceanview Publishing: Rabbit in the Moon by Deborah & Joel Shlian.

About the book, from the publisher:

San Francisco, 1989: Forty years after Mao and his People’s Liberation Army set poised to change China forever, Dr. Lili Quan prepares for a journey that will change her life forever.

In her 27 years, Lili had rarely thought of herself as anything but a perfect American. But to honor her mother’s dying wish that Lili “return home,” Lili reluctantly sets out for China.

For Lili, a passionate idealist, this will be an extraordinary trip filled with remarkable discoveries – from meeting and falling in love with Chi-Wen Zhou, a victim of the Cutural Revolution and zealous Taoist, to finding Dr. Ni-Fu Cheng, the grandfather Lili believed had died years ago. But Dr. Cheng has made the most remarkable discovery of all: he’s discovered the secret to long life.

As Dr. Cheng’s only relative, Lili’s life is in jeopardy. As greedy and unscrupulous men vie for control of the most earth-shattering discovery of the century, Lili Quan could become a pawn in a deadly and dangerous international game.

A rich tapestry of suspense, intrigue, and discovery, Rabbit in the Moon is a moving and miraculous story about finding home – and finding hope.
