China restricted each different western country trader to a certain small area not a part of mainland China so that they could not influence the Chinese. The story includes romance, murder, betrayal, beauty, and an insight into the Oriental mind, which even today, is hard for the Westerner to understand and accept.
I loved every moment of this page turner, absorbed the information it provided and would hope there is some way the author can market this so that it becomes popular. I believe it would make a great movie and I can only praise it.
I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review.
But for the (abbreviated, non-graphic) sex scenes during the romantic portion of the story, I would have recommended this novel to younger readers who are interested in history, because it recalled the adventure tales of yore that I used to love. (Truth be told, I still do.) For older readers, however, I would certainly recommend The Boston Trader.
I received a free copy of this book from Reading Deals to read and give a fair and honest review.
