Left behind in China by her father, who has gone to North America to find work, Choonyi has made her living by selling her paintings in the market. When her father writes one day and asks her to join him, she joyously sets off, only to discover that he has been killed. Choonyi sees the railway and the giant train engines that her father died for, and she is filled with an urge to paint them. But her work disappoints her until a ghostly presence beckons her to board the train where she meets the ghosts of the men who died building the railway. Will Choonyi find a way to make peace with her fathers death? Ghostly, magical, and redeeming, this masterful tale is superbly illustrated by Harvey Chan.
