What a great second part of a very original story of hope, unconditional love and determination. I look forward to third part out in April. Could still be read independently and not part of series but first book gives a lot of background so would recommend reading scavengers daughter first.

A follow on to scavengers daughters which huge chasms at what was the background and future of the characters. In tangled vines you find some of the answers and will continue to do so as the series continues.
The author writes in a style that you truly see the characters and the places. Also gives an insight into the cultural revolution.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys being drawn into a story.

I stumbled across the "Scavenger's Daughters" on Amazon and as it was available from the Kindle lending library thought I had nothing to lose by giving the book a go...Once I started reading I was instantly hooked. I finished reading the book within days and quickly purchased "Tangled Vines" before having to wait for 3 frustrating days for "Bitter Winds" to be released.

As a foster carer here in the UK I feel very humbled reading about about the true love and dedication Benfu and Calli show the girls they take into their care, for little or no reward other than seeing the girls overcome adversity and flourish. I know that the stories are works of fiction but also know that they are based on the reality of the experience of many children in China.

Foster carers, including myself, often complain about our lot, the lack of recognition of just how difficult the task of fostering can be and the impact of ever increasing cutbacks at a times of austerity. Instead we should be thanking our lucky stars for the help and support we are given and for the opportunities available to the children and young people we care for.

Thank you Kay for exploring this difficult topic in a way which is in the same breath compelling to read and thought provoking highlighting the plight of so many children and the true dedication of those who make it their life's work to care for them.

This second book in the saga focuses on the search for the kidnapped daughter.
I found the constant moving from present to past most unsettling & began to lose track of th story. It wasn't riveting enough to keep me reading beyond an hour at a time, & several times I found it so boring I skipped page after page.
I'm sorry but I can't recommend this book, not even as a beach read.

I wish I could also give this book 100 stars. I loved the characters and wept a thousand tearsat Ye Ye and Nai Nai joy at finding their beloved daughter
The story was heartfelt sometimes very painful and joyful all at once.
I have purchased the other 2 books in the series and cannot wait for my kindle to re-charge so that I can read the third one
Everybody should read this book and rejoice that there are still good wonderful people in this troubled world
Go on give yourself the opportunity to share in it

Another very interesting read. Thoughts on the heartache for parents whose child had been stolen, but also dreadful circumstances for the child as she grew up and all the problems she encountered. Glad this young woman was reunited with her family after many difficult years. Looking forward to Book 3.

This series just gets better with every page, I don't know how accurate the description of rural China is because I have never visited. The script is extremely readable and flows with out hesitation and had me captured through the entire series. Very emotional at times but not gratuitously so, the thought of all those young girls and jiji what they had to deal with breaks my heart as I can just imagine the situations they had to deal with at such a young age.
I hope Kay Bratt is going to continue with this, I haven't found anything to compare.

Keep it up Kay

I normally find second books aren't as good as the first. Well I am happy to say I am wrong this time. This is a powerful book and, as a mother myself, I could really empathise with the story. Totally enjoyable, lots of emotions but never any sloppy cliche type s to the story. I will read this again and that is something I very rarely do. Superb and highly recommended, just like the first one. I'm off to start book three now!
