really liked it
bookshelves: grown-up-fiction
Read in June, 2008

I found this a fascinating look into a completely foreign culture. I had no idea exactly what footbinding was or how painful yet important for a good marriage it was. Living in a world where I am free to express my opinion and do what I would like, it was intriguing to have a glimpse of a world where women were second class citizens and not able to even freely communicate with their own families. It made me grateful for my rights and my freedom.
