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.
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.
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.
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
I hope Kay Bratt is going to continue with this, I haven't found anything to compare.
Keep it up Kay
