China Dolls by Lisa See

In 1938, the world's fair is being held in San Francisco and World War II is imminent.  Against this background, three women from very different backgrounds meet at Chinatown's Forbidden City nightclub and become fast friends.  Grace Lee is an American born Chinese woman who has fled a difficult family situation in the midwest;  Helen Fong is from a traditional, prominent Chinatown family; and Ruby Tom is an ambitious aspiring entertainer.  Together, they navigate success, challenges and misfortune, until a shocking betrayal divides them.
