In embarking on a journey to unveil his father's long held secret, a young man finds that in the end, what he discovers is himself.

This story is based on the life of my father. Book II is about 90 percent true. :-)

For those of you who wonder what 'Hainan Dao' means: Hainan is the island at the southernmost tip of China. Dao may mean 'island', though it may also mean 'the way of', as in Daoism or Taoism, or Tae Kwon Dao. Make sense?

I enjoy this story. I love autobiographies, even though this is only 90% true.

I feel I have to write and say thank you. Just read the first chapter and it's very well written. Full of emotion and feeling, balanced with good description of surroundings. I've voted, and will be following you.

Very inspirational.

Aaah, Cantonese. I was wandering whether it was mandarin or not :)

Yay! Up to the second chapter! It was great! I've never called my dad AhBa. Is that something you do for politeness and respect? James. My brother's name is James :) AND TEN MILLION DOLLARS!!! Comfortable? That's an understatement. But great job, looking forward to reading more.
