The Better Mother by Jen Sookfong Lee
I was really excited to discover a couple of weeks ago that I had won an ARC copy of The Better Mother from Goodreads.com! I have always had a soft spot for Canadian literature (like The Birth House, Water for Elephants, Three Day Road), and I'm sure this soon to be released novel by Jen Sookfong Lee with not disappoint! Set in China town of Vancouver, the plot focuses on wedding photographer Danny Lim as searches for Miss Val, a burlesque dancer he remembers as a child who holds the key to finally understanding himself.
