The inside back dust jacket states:

"Dr. Irene Cheng has written this book with the context of Hong Kong in mind. She includes appendices on Chinese customs, calendars and history that will explain to the reader not only the woman, Clara Ho Tung, but the milieu in which she worked and raised her prodigious family. The book is Dr. Cheng's tribute to her mother, who wrote her own memoirs before World War II."
