WOW! CAN A MOTHER REALLY PARCEL OUT HER CHILDREN FOR THE PROMISE OF WEALTH?! THAT IS NOT ACTUALLY THE WORST THING SHE DOES IN THIS STORY! YOU WILL LOVE TO HATE THIS WOMAN WHO WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO RISE FROM RAGS TO RICHES!
First comes the miracle and then comes the madness. The miracle is the birth of identical triplets, and the madness is all about money, of course. The year is 1916 and the rare occurrence of identical triplets turns the newborn baby girls into pint-size celebrities. Unfortunately, this small portion of fame soon leads to a much larger portion of greed, and the triplets are split up—parceled out to the highest bidders. Two of the girls go to live in a hilltop mansion. The third girl isn’t so lucky. She ends up with a shady family that lives in an abandoned work camp. That’s how their lives begin: two on top, one on the bottom, and all three in the same small town.
Identical in appearance and with the same blood in their veins, the sisters should have also shared united destinies. Instead, those destinies are thrown to the wind, and the consequences will be extreme. “Tea Cups & Tiger Claws” explores wealth and poverty, jealousy and conceit, and is ultimately a story about deadly ambition and how it will once again throw the sisters together. It’s a journey that spans fifty years, three generations, and the perilous gulf between the rich and the poor. Along the way, you’ll marvel at the opulence of a mansion where presidents are entertained, and you’ll walk cautiously through a shanty town that harbors the forgotten. So get ready for the unexpected, and let “Tea Cups & Tiger Claws” take you down the crooked byways of this captivating family saga.
