Snow Flower & the Secret Fan by Lisa See

Snow Flower and the Secret FanSnow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. This is such a powerful book! I really enjoyed reading about a different culture in past times. I found it harsh, but sometimes the past is harsh and we, as the world need to learn from the mistakes made and move on. I found Lily to be a girl (and then woman) of self-discovery and change. I was so sad to learn that she became a bit harsh towards Snow Flower, but was glad to see that she tried to make amends to Snow Flower's family once she passed away. There were a few parts in the beginning of the book that were slow, but overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

**If anyone wants to recommend any books about past Asian cultures (China, Japan, India, etc.), that would be WONDERFUL!
