Book Description

Alone in the bamboo forest, seven-year-old Little Jade, still dressed in red silk after her father's recent wedding, wonders whether she will ever meet her real mother. DAUGHTER OF THE BAMBOO FOREST is a story set in war-torn, post-revolutionary China during the 1940s. From age seven to twelve, Little Jade longs for the attention of an opium-addicted father and clashes with a desperate, resentful stepmother. The young girl is inadvertently swept by the tides of history, encountering a plague that decimated a village, Catholic nuns in a convent school, and the fabled dragon king along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well writen, moving and interesting 1 April 2012
By Kaya
Format:Kindle Edition
The writing style flowed effortlessly with lovely description. The story was moving without being too "syrupy" and I found I cared about the main character Little Jade. The story of her hardship was compelling and interesting, with just enough historical detail and not too many characters. Loved it! More!!

A well written account of a fascinating subject.It invokes a now-lost society (probably a good thing). I loved the cover as well
