Book #1: Dreams of Joy, Lisa See

Dreams of JoyDreams of Joy by Lisa See

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. This is a wonderfully written tale of a mother and daughter struggling in Communist China. It is a sequel to Shanghai Girls, which I also HIGHLY recommend. Lisa See has a way of making you feel like you are in China, seeing everything firsthand. The BIG twist was that Pearl and May's father is still alive. I thought he might be, but wasn't sure. Reading these two books, along with Snow Flower & The Secret Fan really makes me want to read more of See's works.
