I have known Lisa See for about 20 years, and have spoken with her for each of her books, since the second one.  Here is information about her taken from her website.

In her beloved New York Times bestsellers Snow Flower and the Secret FanPeony in Love, Shanghai Girls, Dreams of Joy, and, most recently, China Dolls, Lisa See has brilliantly illuminated the strong bonds between women. These books have been celebrated for their authentic, deeply researched, lyrical stories about Chinese characters and cultures. Now, in The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane (Scribner, March 2017), See incorporates impressive research on international adoption, the history of the Akha people in China, and Pu’er tea farming and customs to tell a powerful story about a family separated by circumstances, culture, and distance. The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane paints an unforgettable portrait of a little-known region and its people and celebrates the unbreakable connection between mothers and daughters. Booklist has called the novel “an extraordinary homage to unconditional love.”
