I enjoyed the sequel to Women Of The Silk. I wanted to find out what happened so some of the original characters. In some ways, I enjoyed the first book most because it took the reader through what happened to a young girl until she grew up. It began in 1919 and ended in 1938. In this book, the sequel, the reader follows the main character, Pei, through to 1973. It was a quickly moving story. It was interesting, informative, happy and sad. I found myself in Pei's life, wondering what choices I would have made. I thought this book moved much more quickly through all the hard times. I wasn't aware of the history of Japan invading China during those years. I don't recall our History classes teaching very much about what happened to all the British patriots in China during that invasion by Japan.
