|« Across Many Mountains by Yangzom Brauen||TAST Week 14 - Satin Stitch (Plus more) »|
(Just a quick, simple review because I didn't write one when I finished the book in the fall of 2011.)
I couldn't put this book down! Min completely destroyed my childhood image of Pearl Buck as an "old lady." She has become a vital, vibrant, real person to me. I enjoyed this book for the friendship between Pearl and Willow, and wonder if any of the real friends in the real Pearl's life had been this close. I also enjoyed it for the Chinese perspective. For years all I knew of China were Pearl Buck's stories. Min validates Buck's view of China, for me.
