The Uncrushable Rose – Bambi Shen

Ur dribbble

My first book cover design just happens to be in Chinese.

The Uncrushable Rose is a moving and heart-rending memoir—the story of a girl born in 1939 to a Chinese diplomat in Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam. Author Bambi Shen offers vivid memories of the concentration camps she lived in during the five-year Japanese occupation of then Indochina, in World War II. Her memoir also paints a clear picture of the mother/daughter conflict predictable in a culturally patriarchal society and male-dominated family system. It is a story of challenge and survival, and of the struggle to be freed from the limitations of centuries-old tradition and cultural boundaries.
