it was amazing
Read in July, 2007

In this sequel to Women of the Silk, Gail Tsukiyama continues to work her word magic in telling the story of Pei who, along with her friends at the silk factory, is uprooted by the invading Imperial Japanese Army. Desperate for work she takes a position as a domestic in a not-so-nice situation where the pecking order among the household staff is stifling. Fortunately for Pei, she finds another position in the household of an Englishwoman where she is treated with kindness and respect. Unfortunately, however, the horrors of war separate them and Pei must continue her journey to find peace.

Another wonderful story by Gail Tsukiyama.
