Reaping the whirlwind of communism

by donna on Jun 2, 2008

Fisrs time novelist, Kate Furnivall has created a novel that is fresh and inspiring. Loosely based on her mother's experience as a Russian emigre in China in the the 1920s,she develops a story that is rich in character and the sights and sounds of China during this turbulent time in history. She uses great descriptive passages to highlight the many aspects of the cultures and nationalities that lived in China at the time. She has good character development, although the Chinese are a little cliched. Also the book could have been reduced by about a hundred pages, but this is a common complaint of mine. Despite its length, it was a fast read and is begging for a sequel.
