really liked it

As with any author, I can't help but compare one work with another that I really liked. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan was beautiful and Peony in Love didn't quite impress me as much. This book put Lisa See back in my "good graces". The ending, without the knowledge of a sequel, would've definitely made me rate this lower though. Apart from that, I loved getting lost in this book. Chinese history and culture is so interesting and Lisa See always manages to bring it into her writing so beautifully and heartbreakingly. I am looking forward to reading Dreams of Joy now.
