Well said! I enjoyed this book too! Yep, I had to do a google and wikipedia search too on bound feet. :)

I loved this book. I see that you mentioned the idea of lesbian relationships in your review. I wondered about that myself, and wonder what other people made of Lily's love for her laotong.

We read it for our book club, can't wait to talk about it with them next week. I too googled the bound feet. I could not picture what they were doing to these girls or how they could become so small. Amazing and horrible. But a great read!!!

I am in the process of reading this book. Like all of you, I found myself googling footbinding as well. This a great read so far. I look forward to discussing it at my next book club's meeting next month.

I READ THIS book several months ago and found it to be well written , informative and thought provoking. I do not think there was any lesbianism in their love and devotion for one another. A. good read just like THE BEATING OF HEART STRINGS
