Good Weather for Reading...
I really enjoy a story which gives one a good look at another culture. Jepson's debut novel paints a rich picture of family relationships in early nineteenth century China, the disparity between the wealthy and the poor and the sweeping changes brought by the Communist Revolution. If you enjoyed reading Memoirs of a Geisha, or any of Lisa See's novels, I'm sure you'll enjoy this book too.
I hope you have a good book to snuggle up with on these cold winter nights. Our forecast for tonight says temps (with wind chill) of minus 35 to minus 38!! Brrrrrr......... You know this chickie will not be poking her nose out the door...
"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers." ~ Charles W. Eliot
