    In 19th-century China, wives and daughters were foot-bound and lived in almost total seclusion. The women in one remote Hunan county developed their own secret code for communication: "nu shu" ("women's writing"). This lyrical and emotionally charged novel delves into one of the most mysterious of human relationships: female friendships.

Lisa See Does It Again

by Dick N on Jul 19, 2012

Good read. Lisa See's always urging you to the next page. Her characters quickly bring you from chapter to chapter and --all too soon-- to The End. More
