about this item

"On leave from grad school, Jane Morrow has a new job, helping out in her uncle's fortune cookie factory, and a new roommate--her precocious 11-year-old cousin. Though surrounded by her loving family and their close-knit Chinatown community, Jane feels like a colossal failure. Writing fortunes is a kind of poetry, but Jane is penning words of wisdom for strangers while wondering if she will ever have the guts to move on with her dissertation and her life. When Jane meets medical student Sutton St. James at her local noodle shop, sparks fly. Sutton stands at a career crossroads: surgical residency at an Ivy League university or stem cell research overseas? The first would make her ultra-conservative father--the former Surgeon General--happy, but the latter might help find a cure for her mother's debilitating MS. Neither would make them comfortable with their daughter's sexuality. Ever striving for perfection, Sutton's only certainty is that she has no time for a relationship--yet neither she nor Jane can deny the chemistry between them. Sutton quickly becomes a fixture in Jane's community... and in her life. Jane opens a whole new world to Sutton--beloved traditions, caring neighbors, and warm family, so unlike Sutton's cold, sterile upbringing. And Sutton inspires Jane to be more ambitious and to dream again--and challenges her to have faith in herself. It's a picture-perfect romance until Sutton's father's scandalous secret threatens her family and her reputation. In her rush to protect Jane and the community she has come to hold dear, has Sutton turned her back on the only thing that truly matters? Confucius Jane is a rich and charming novel that vividly depicts New York City's Chinatown while taking the reader on a touching journey of family, faith, and love"--
