Recommended to Laura by: Nana
Read in July, 2008

It was interesting to learn about the life of women in 19th Century China in this novel. The story is fiction but is based on the author's research of this time period.
Very interesting - footbinding, the separate realms of men and women, the pressures to produce sons, sworn sisters and laotongs, and nu shu (a secret language used by women to communicate with each other).
