I wish I could do 3 1/2 stars for this one. There were a lot of things I liked about the book but then things that I didn't. The information about Chinese culture was really interesting (even if the stuff on foot binding was pretty brutal) and it was really well researched but I found myself annoyed with some aspects of the story. The whole "lovesick maiden" stuff was just so hard to related to even if it was a real cultural phenonmenon. Overall, I liked it, just didn't love it.
