Read in February, 2012

I love Rumer Godden, but had somehow missed reading this book until now. It has an unusual structure which requires the reader to be patient as Godden weaves together the stories of all the people who have lived at China Court, moving from one to another seamlessly over a span of years. It's not my favorite Godden, but as an author, I had to admire her mastery as I had little trouble following the various threads and timelines.
