Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
Lily is the daughter of a humble farmer, and to her family she is just another expensive mouth to feed. Then the local matchmaker delivers startling news: if Lily's feet are to be bound properly, they will be flawless. In nineteenth-century China, where a woman's eligibility is judged by the shape and size of her feet, this is extraordinary good luck.
"Startlingly vivid... Punishing customs, such as footbinding, and unbreakable female bonds are brought to life in enchanting detail. So gorgeous it hurts."
"A passionate and involving story of love... a beautifully written novel, as informative as it is moving."
