by (Author)

  • 106,331 Words
  • 280 Pages

An inspiring memoir, spanning from the bleak Mongolian Plateau to an exotic bordello in Melbourne, Australia.

Lily Yang’s Take Memories, Leave Footprints is a sweeping journey through time, continents and diverse cultures. Like a modern-day Marco Polo, Lily invites you to look over her shoulder as her amazing journey unfolds, beginning when she was a child exiled to a bitterly cold village in far north China. Viewed through the eyes of a child, her oblivion of the horrors the family endures there will touch your soul. We journey with her family as they’re rehabilitated, and then into her private world as she faces life alone after her beloved parents pass away.

But this is far from a tragic story, it is one full of humour, courage and the beauty of the human spirit, written with a sublime focus on visual imagery. It’s about family, a young woman growing in sophistication, a first love lost then found again twenty years later, and of life lived in between. We follow her relationships around the world and readers will find a chord is struck within the pages of her book that occasionally evokes the tenderness of a personal memory. But above all, Lily will warm your heart as she often stumbles, then steps with increasing confidence from horror to genuine happiness on her roller-coaster of a life. Her story is sure to put Lily Yang’s name alongside the more interesting “madams” of our time.
