it was amazing

I love Jeannie Lin's style. The words "tasteful restraint" come to mind. She writes well-researched stories set in Tang dynasty China. Besides the very tender and romantic love story, her works also educate me, in an entertaining way, about many interesting aspects of Chinese culture. This book spends some time on calligraphy, for example--so fascinating. Her books are something of a throwback to the well-researched historicals in the 80s and 90s that weren't always, always, always set in Regency England. Wish there were more authors writing books like this.
