That being said, as you can see, book two of the Scavenger's Daughters did not disappoint me. I will admit to having a harder time with Dahlia's story because I can't stand women who allow themselves to be victimized by men...but, and it's a big but, the ending revealed some things about her life that made me understand her a whole lot better and she displayed amazing strength when I believe I would have crumbled. She is truly a phoenix rising from the ashes, this woman. She surprised me. I didn't like her at first, at all, but by the end of the book, I "got it".
Ms. Bratt once again lives up to her "brand" with this title. Capturing the heart of humanity. So many people in this book are horrid and cruel but each one is counteracted with a person who cares, who loves, who wishes to help, and we need to be reminded of that, especially nowadays. We need to remember for every bad, there's a good. This book should serve as a reminder to anyone who reads it that there is both good and bad in the world and also that there is always HOPE. I think the strongest theme this time was hope. Just when you think you've hit rock bottom...
The story in a nutshell: A continuation from book one, Linnae is running her own successful business now, the family is very proud, everything is fabulous, but her adopted parents still have a whole in their lives from the daughter they lost thirty years before. This is HER story, and it's one of heartache. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Linnae is determined to find Dahlia and reunite her with her biological parents.Read more ›
This book flows well from the first in the series, The Scavenger’s Daughters. It was fun to remember each character again. There is enough information on each character for this book to stand alone if you have not read the first one, but the first was great, so I recommend reading it also.
The book was masterfully written and each page brings you deeper and deeper into the Chinese culture. Old mixed with new. Get lost into the beautifully descriptive settings and character development. Each chapter leaves you wanting to read more. Author Kay Bratt has done her homework developing the story line with interesting Chinese customs and traditions, and brings each character to life with descriptive detail and emotion.
I highly recommend this book for adults. It has some adult content, and sensitive issues.
I look forward to reading Bitter Winds, book 3 in Tales of the Scavenger’s Daughters this spring.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Linnea and her family -- all of whom are part and parcel of her new shop -- bring joy coupled with a hard-work ethic into each other's lives as well as their customers and neigborhood. Contrast that with Li Jin, another family member who was kidnapped at a very early age and has no idea that she belongs to the beauty and kindness of such a family -- and her abusive criminal of a husband, Erik, and his equally abusive friends. Li Jin lives a life of cruelty while trying to shield the treasure of her life, her son Jojo.
Kay Bratt weaves the plot through darkness and light, the darkness accentuating Li Jin's misery, even when she is finally able to escape from her abuser. Yet although the darkness follows her as she bravely goes forward in her quest to find a safe harbor, she is unaware of the love that does surround her -- it is there and eventually envelopes her with the same beauty and levity that Linnea and her family know and practice. The reader breathes a sigh of relief.
Yet there is still room for something to happen and this reader feels that this book ends only to begin again somewhere else. Altough the book is fascinating, it is "dry" in spots with very little background information - or visual descriptions of the streets, food, and I would have loved to have read more in order to get the "flavor" of the area where the actions take place. Then again, perhaps the action, the narrative is meant to be directed more internally, cerebrally.
