Gold Mountain Wives is the first Chinese novel ever written about the history of the Taishan people who immigrated to America. The book focuses on the lives of the women who were left behind by their husbands who traveled thousands of miles away to work in Gold Mountain (America). This novel unveils the untold stories of loyalty, betrayal, the separations and struggles, and the eternal hopes and dreams of the Taishanese women.

舊金山”美華文協”會員,女作家伍可娉潛心醞釀多年完成的長篇小說《金山伯的女人》,最近由美國強磊出版社隆重推出,全書近三十萬字。據中國新華社、中國僑網報導,這是迄今為止海內外第一部真實反映”中國第一僑鄉”廣東省台山女性命運的長卷,填補了華僑文學史上一個長久空白。題材沉重而新穎,時間與空間的跨度漫長,人性在時代風雲中的變形,東西文化在女性移民心中的衝撞,均以蕩氣迴腸的悲歡離合表現。人物形象與語言充滿鄉土氣息。國內專家指出,此書不僅具有文學品位,在台山風土人情與華僑史研究上也富有價值。此書甫出版,在中國新浪網、中國新聞社和香港中國通訊社等媒體即好評如潮。
