Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
A very touching historic fictional account of how Chinese women fought to protect and support their families through several generations. Mr. Yep does an excellent job of making the reader care about and identify with the characters in the story who struggle to do "the right thing" by giving up on their own dreams.

My one dislike about the book is a minor inaccuracy at the end where the author infers that Singapore is a part of China--a common misconception for Westerners--but I would have expected more of Mr. Yep as a Chinese-American who is writing about Asia.
