I'd heard a LOT of praise for this book, but I'm stunned that I hadn't heard any for the way the f/f love story is handled here. Yes, it's subversive, but not in the ways you're probably imagining. Lily and Snow Flower's relationship is the central conflict but (as opposed to about everything else a woman might want in this society) decidedly NOT taboo. Wonder wonder wonder!
