The Girl Who Wrote in Silk
Sometimes, I'm in the mood for historical fiction; however, I like my historical fiction to be more dramatic and less romance-y. This book had both elements, so I found myself sometimes engaged and sometimes not. Alternating between the past and present, we follow the tale of a young Chinese woman who survived a terrible event only to suffer the devastating loss of her family in a time and place when Chinese were persona non grata in America and young woman of present day who happens upon an embroidered sleeve hidden in her ancestral home. I enjoyed the historical side of this story very much and patiently listened through the goofy romantic banter of the present day protagonist to get to the good parts.
