Read in July, 2009

I enjoyed this book for lots of reasons. First of all, I was interested in China and learned a lot about the country and the reign of Mao Tse-tung. Second, the husband charmed me from the beginning, and though at first I didn't care much about the wife, I eventually really liked her as well. Finally, as a married woman, it's nice to watch from the inside as another couple struggles to make it work. The book is about an American Woman who decides to marry a man from China even though they do not even speak the same langauge. The relationship, though very unique, is quite comparable to most relationships. They have to learn to communicate, work through differing idologies and decide how to live together in harmony. The narator manages a beautiful simplicity with her words. All in all it was a gentle, wonderful read.
