I totally agree with Kathy, this book would make a great movie. It reminded me of Memoirs of a Geisha, with great imagery and lots of historical information. It just blows my mind how women survived back then. I tell ya, I was looking at the Asian women on BART a lot differently when reading this book. This author just came out with a new book called "Peony" which I beleive continues with this family/story.
Great book.

Kathy So glad you liked it Kor .. I thought you would. I'm adding "Peony" to my list!

Kelly I loved this book as well. I definately want to get Peony! Thanks for the news flash. I was so curious (in a morbid way) with the whole foot binding thing, I looked it up and saw what a real foot ended up looking like and got a little more detail about the background of why this came into being. It was horrible and I am so glad I was not born there!
