My most recent literary accomplishment (reading, not writing) was a book that I did not want to end--a book I found hard to put down. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See brings the reader to late 19th Century China, in a time and culture that is so far away from today's America. The book revolves around the relationship of two women who grow up together and are each other's support system through thick and thin until something goes horribly wrong. If you liked books such as Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden or The Kitchen God's Wife by Amy Tan, you will adore this book as much as I. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, and, as always, a picture is below so you know what book to pick up during your next bookstore field trip!
