Editorial Reviews

Review

“Bratt brings to life the struggle of two individuals during China’s terrible time that all should know about with an honest, yet compassionate, style. She brings us as close as we ever want to be to an evil time, yet shows some found the courage to preserve their dignity. A must read.” —Mingmei Yip, author of Skeleton Women and other China-inspired novels

“If you enjoy history, revolution, courage, romance, and family, then [The Palest Ink] will make a great work for your library. Kay Bratt has given us a work of intensity.” —Blogcritics.org

“Bratt has done her research and presents the tale of those tumultuous years in a fascinating narrative.” —WanderlustAndChineseInk.com

The Palest Ink is a beautiful, moving, gripping, mesmerising story of ordinary people caught in extraordinary circumstances. It is a story of bravery and honor, of love and compassion, as well as growing up and taking chances...The Palest Ink is certainly the best novel I have read about Maoist China; simply superb!” —Fresh Fiction

“A deftly crafted and riveting read from beginning to end, The Palest Ink once again demonstrates author Kay Bratt's extraordinary storytelling talents as a first-class novelist. Very highly recommended.” —Midwest Book Review

“[Recommended] to readers wanting to experience an infamous period of Chinese history, where a single wrong word or action could have disastrous consequences.” —Historical Novel Society
