Professor David Demers had a good job and a good life. So why would the divorced man who had never changed a diaper adopt a Chinese baby girl on his own? China Girl answers this question and then tells the story of the adoption, including the trip to China and life afterward.
China Girl is funny, heartwarming and suspenseful. Will this balding middle-aged man learn to care for and bond with Lee Ann, who is struggling to overcome some physical and health problems? Can he love her as much as a mother loves her child?
