In this candid memoir Hofer Ho reflects on his tumultuous young life under the indomitable but often questionable leadership of his mother.

From her own childhood experiences of war and the ever-near dangers of rape and starvation, Ho relates his mother's rise from the ashes to conquer every obstacle that threatens her family's success. But at what cost? From the near abandonment of husband and home to the steady erosion of her most sacred relationships; cat-and-mouse acts with immigration and close calls with the law Ho questions the price of his mother's seemingly insatiable need to acquire wealth.

My Hakka Mother is a brave confrontation of memories so deep and bitter only forgiveness can soothe them.
