really liked it
bookshelves: fiction
Read in September, 2007

The title sounded hokey, but since I enjoyed "Snowflower and the Secret Fan" by Lisa See, I decided to pick it up. I was not disappointed. I may have actually liked this book better than "Snowflower." It's historical fiction set during the Qing dynasty in 17th century China and delves into the role of women in Chinese society, women as poets/writers, and the Chinese afterlife. Sounds like a weird combination, but I'd highly recommend it.
