Product Description

Review

""The Language of Threads is a delightful novel filled with adventure, surprise, and heart. The courageous women at its center are sure to captivate readers from all backgrounds."--Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, author of "Mistress of Spices
"Tsukiyama's writing is richly descriptive and filled with historical detail . . . Recommended."--Shirley N. Quan, Orange County Public Library, Stanton, California, "Library Journal
"In spare, evocative prose, Tsukiyama paints contrasting pictures of the bustling wealth of Hong Kong and its massive poverty . . . Women provide for each other in myriad ways in this world, and the relationships forged between them glow at the heart of Tsukiyama's story. Sisters are reunited, mothers and adopted daughters remain steadfastly loyal, childbirth breeds grief, but affirmation, too, and great friends even return from the dead to console their loved ones in this quiet but powerful effort from a writer who proves once again that she is an unusually gifted storyteller."--"Publishers Weekly
"A saga of a Chinese woman in the WWII era and sequel to "Women of the Silk . . . historically fascinating."--"Kirkus Reviews
