This is one of those rare books which take you right into the story. This is not a particularly happy story but it is absolutely wonderful. Anhua is a skillful writer and as you journey through her life you feel a part of it. The joy, the despair, the anger, the triumphs. i began to feel like anhua was a little sister. The book is gripping to the very end and i am going to miss the writings of this strong, brave, delicate loving woman. write another little flower, tell us of a new happy life and what little yan is doing.
