As with "A Hundred Flowers", this book captured me from the start. The characters, surrounded by the culture and life as a silk worker, combined to make a journey into China's past come to life. Thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more by Tsukiyama.

This is a very readable book, with dynamic and believable characters. I enjoyed the friendships that were created during times of difficulty. Tsukiyama does an excellent job of drawing you into their world, and making you sympathetic to their struggles. I also admired the resiliency and strength she displayed in the characters.
