by Gaye (Washington State): War divides countries but more painfully war divided sisters. One sister lived her life in mainland China, separated from sister, who lived in Taiwan. The political divide kept them apart for a half century. The physical separation created a political division between the sisters as they each tried to live their lives in the midst of the governments of their countries. This is a sad, haunting story of yet another fallout of the greed of humankind to rule over others.
