I absolutely loved this book. Ms Davenport has such a wonderful style of writing that is almost poetic in a Kiplingesque kind of way, and somehow that goes with the tragic scenes she describes. If you've ever read Kipling's Four Feathers then maybe you'll know what I mean. I learned some history too, especially the massacre of the Chinese after the civil war. Such brutal times, and so much tragedy for many years to come.
