Fai's imagery is beautiful and does manage to transport the reader to China in the early twentieth century. However, the book is divided into two parts, and it would have been better - and helped with pacing - if it was two seperate books, one focusing on Li-Xia, the title character, and the other on Siu-Sing, her daughter.
