I love family trees and I'm surprised I never thought of working Su Lin's out on paper. I was playing with a chart tracking her descendants for a present day book, but haven’t decided how/if it's going to work out! Thank you very much for bringing this up!(less)

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
"This is hands down one of the best fairy tale retellings I have ever read. I did not have high expectations at all, having found Brigid Kemmerer’s Letters to the Lost to be a MEH read (please don't curse me!), but this story hooked me right from t..." Read more of this review »

The second book, A HEART SO FIERCE AND BROKEN, has Grey's POV as one of the main POVs. There is no love triangle; he will have his own love interest.

“As Aunty Lee always said, you can’t cut out bad memories without removing part of your heart, but you can always create good memories to override them.”
Ovidia Yu, Aunty Lee's Delights

“I had seen enough of Western courtship rituals to know European families did little to identify, research and arrange suitable marriages. Instead, to catch the attention of potential partners, Western males had to resort to shows of strength, aggression and virility, rather like wild boars in the mating season, and Western females had to decorate themselves and their homes, like bower birds.”
Ovidia Yu, The Frangipani Tree Mystery

“As far as Aunty Lee was concerned, people ought to go through the ideas they carried around in their heads as regularly as they turned out their store cupboards. No matter how wisely you shopped, there would be things in the depths that were past their expiration dates or gone damp and moldy---or that has been picked up on impulse and were no longer relevant. Aunty Lee believed everything inside a head or cupboard could affect everything else in it by going bad or just taking up more space than it was worth.”
Ovidia Yu, Aunty Lee's Delights
