Pamela Looks like you're catching up on your GoodReads entries!! I see you marked a Gail Tsukiyama novel - - have you read her "The Samurai's Garden"? I love that book, have read it a couple of times!

Robbin No, I have not . I favor any of the Chinese authored and themed books. I love the culture and their use of language .

Pamela Ooooh, I could make some great recommendations for Chinese-authored and themed books! I recently came across this, which I had written as part of a review of a book that I didn't like, LOL. A few that I would definitely recommend such as “On Gold Mountain” by Lisa See and “Wild Swans” by Jung Chang

I also recommend “When Red is Black” by Qui Xiaolong, a novel that takes place in modern Shanghai, and “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” by Lisa See, a wonderful novel and great read about life in the last century in China for women with bound feet.

Have you ever read "Peony" by Pearl Buck? It's about a Jewish family in China in the early part of the 20th century.
