really liked it
Read in March, 2010

I love historical fiction and especially like learning about China. This book offered a perspective on life for Chinese immigrants to the U.S. around World War II that I had never considered before. So, the historical perspective hooked me. But I have to say what I was left with had more to do with the story about two sisters sticking together through it all. I do not have a sister so I've always wondering about that dynamic. This story made me wish for that experience. See does a nice job of showing the ups and downs of the relationship, how complicated it can be.

A nice read.
