The Last Empress: Madame Chiang Kai-shek and the Birth of Modern China by Hannah Pakula
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Epic historical account of Madame Chiang's family background, the family history of her father, and the truth that she was the power behind Chiang Kai-Shek. They say behind every powerful man is a strong woman, and Madam Chiang epitomises that. I will not give out any more spoilers...but just to add a tiny point...I especially liked the development of the story-line from the generation before Madame Chiang's; I wish they'd do a biography about her father as well.
