Om My mother and our seven siblings
The heroine, once as a graceful young mistress, shifted into a poor widow burdened with her seven children. With amazing courage, she endeavored every means to make a living such as sewing, spinning, setting up a stall and running a steamed stuffed bun store, thus to present her family from starvation. Her children grew up with care from their mother. Though received insult in the society, they kept self-confidence and self-respect. They neither knew nor questioned the original sin of their family and accepted unfairness of the destiny helplessly. Up to the beginning of the Cultural Revolution, the family suffered a greater disaster. It is not a story of the losers as they never try to fight for themselves.
