At 28 Virginia decided to try love again, she married a man that she calls “love at first sight”.

She was born in Hong Kong, but came to America with her family when she was five-years-old just like Pearl was, when she arrived with her family. Jean Kwoks parents lost all their money when they moved to America, so like Pearls parents they had to work at a factory, where they had to work hard every day to make a living. In addition to that did Jean Kwok also dance as a professional ballroom dancer when she was younger and so does Pearl in Where The Gods Fly in contradistinction to Kwok, Pearls is a ballet dancer.

Well ladies, we have come a long way in the world haven 't we? Fifty years ago women were slaves to the domestic scene, expected to marry straight out of college and have three children by the time they were 30. Women stayed in the house cleaning, cooking and taking care of the children while their husbands were off earning the money. In addition, they could have never imagined themselves doing anything more extreme or exciting than knitting or playing cards with the neighbors down the street every Saturday night. Fast forward to present day where women are achieving goals never before imagined and participating in sports a woman fifty years ago could never have envisioned partaking in.
