The Shanghai Legacy is based loosely on the true story of Dina’s great-great grandmother and is classified as a historical fiction due to the inability to verify certain facts.

A young woman creates a life she was not allowed to have… In mid-nineteenth century China, Lee Ying lives as the daughter of a prominent merchant family in Shanghai. Surviving a childhood wrought with physical and emotional abuse, Ying grows up to reject the life that her family has planned for her, believing she is destined for greater things. Through her Shaolin masters, Ying proves her talents and skills in martial arts to be far superior to those of most men around her. She is soon reunited with a long lost childhood friend, Lee Yok Fei, who is one of the last remaining descendents of the royal Ming family, masquerading as a high ranking official in the Qing Empire.

The Shaolin masters and Lee Yok Fei recruit Ying to become leader of the rebel group, the White Lotus Sect. Ying’s passion and dedication towards overthrowing the Qing Empire and restoring the former glory of her homeland drives her to become one of history’s greatest martial artists and leaders. She is forced to enter a masquerade of her own, disguising herself as a man while leading the White Lotus Sect in various rebellions and massacres of foreign officials stationed in Shanghai. As Ying’s life begins to splinter with the various roles she must play to satisfy familial obligations, her masters’ hopes and her own dreams, she meets Alexei Urmanov, a Russian captain. They begin a love affair that unleashes both their passions and desires in the most forbidden of ways, a love affair that would change the course of history for generations to come.
