Brittany Michelle asked Lisa See:

Have you ever thought about writing anything further on the emperor's concubine mentioned in Snow Flower and the Secret Fan? Her story on her creation of nu shu was sad but captivating. I'd love to read more....

Lisa See I actually did think about that at one time. When I knew I was going to write a story about nu shu, I could have set it at any time -- during the time of that concubine, when nu shu was rediscovered, and everything in between for about 1,000 years. In the end, I really wanted to write about what happened during the Taiping Rebellion when the women went into the mountains.
