Description :Mei Chen had spent her life running, from sexual abuse, violence and the spirits. The drugs no longer dulled their voices, and she couldn't escape. She was suicidal. Ling and Yufen are two other women ruled by the spirits they worship, equally overtaken by misfortune and disaster. To escape the mess of broken relationships and painful memories seems impossible. Taiwan's churches have reached the middle classes, but for these working-class women old superstitions held sway, compounded by brutality and drug use. These three stories, skilfully intertwined, show that no situation is beyond the reach of God's grace.
