the expatriatesIn the stunning follow-up to her acclaimed first novel, Janice Lee delves into the lives of three very different women living in the intimate expatriate community of Hong Kong in this transporting novel about motherhood, marriage, and the elusive nature of happiness. Mercy, a young KoreanAmerican and recent Columbia University graduate, is adrift, undone after a terrible incident in her recent past. Hilary, a lonely, wealthy housewife, is haunted by her struggle to have a child, something she believes could save her foundering marriage. Meanwhile, Margaret, once a happily married mother of three, takes every opportunity to escape from her life in the wake of a shattering loss. As each woman struggles with her own demons, their lives collide in ways that have irreversible consequences for them all.

Lee’s debut novel, THE PIANO TEACHER, has been published in 26 territories.
