This is a simply wonderful book! Here you will find the story of two Chinese girls who become the best and dearest of friends. You will follow their relationship through girlhood, marriage, babies, and death. You will enter the intimate world of Chinese women and experience first hand the trials of foot binding and other Chinese traditions. I learned so much from the reading of this book. I promise you the story will capitivate and hold you until the end. It will linger with you long after. A truly wonderful read!
