Book #13 - Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

Rating: 4

A beautifully-told story of friendship, regret, love and pain. I especially enjoyed the historical/cultural aspect - learning about the social customs and fate of women in 19th century rural China, "old sames", nu shu (the 'secret' women's writing), and the section on foot-binding made me cringe to read it but was enlightening. Recommended.
