Although China Doll is a work of fiction, some very real issues are addressed in this dynamic story, especially regarding human rights and the one-child policy in China. Singer Nola Sands is on tour in China when a newborn baby girl is literally thrust into her hands. As she develops a bond with the infant and acts to save her from being sent into a Chinese orphanage, she finds herself drawn in to the life struggles and human rights issues that the Chinese face every day.
China Doll is well researched, and a page turner. It is a story of how life and death of children in China continues to hold a pivotal role in society today.
