really liked it
Read in October, 2011

This novel is about a Scottish woman who travels across the world to marry a man she hardly knows in China and is caught out after an adulterous affair. It is similar in style to A Town Called Alice (I don't know whether this is due to the fact they were of the same period and deal in different ways with WWII in Asia). Definitely worth reading for a sense of China and Japan in the early twentieth century although this(coincidentally) was the third book in a row I read centred around adultery so a change of topic after this would be much welcomed.
