this is the follow up to Women of the Silk. hard to say which was a better book as i liked both of them. the story picks up years later and away fromthe silk factories. the author,one of my favorites, does a good job in the follow up. definitly a good read.
It's a sequel to Women of the Silk, but you wouldn't really need to read Women of the Silk first. I thought The Language of Threads was actually the better story of the two. Gail Tsukiyama is a talented author and you won't be disappointed.
This is the sequel to Women of the Silk. It picks up with Pei's life as she arrives in Hong Kong in the 1930's. It is a great book, though not quite as good as the first.
If you loved "Women of Silk" and its main character Pei, you will love this one two. The book tells the story of what happened to Pei after she left the silk works and arrives in Hong Kong in 1937 just in time for the Japanese occupation.
A dramatic story of hardship and survival for women fighting the forces of war, providing a real look at the life and customs of China
A continuation of Pei's life as she continues to learn how to survive under a whole new set of circumstances. Her longing for the past motivates many of her actions in her new surroundings. Learn how Pei and the sisterhood continue.
worth reading if you like amy tan.
I enjoyed this story. I read Women of the Silk first and this is the sequel. I found the first 2 chapters to be boring but was necessary to set up the rest of the story. Good read!!!!!
Like all of Gail Tsukiayama's books, this one I couldn't put down.
The follow-up to Women of the Silk; not as good, but worthwhile to follow the lives of the characters in the previous book.
I read the first book (Women of the Silk) first which is helpful tho not necessary as the author gives hints of previous events. I enjoyed learning about the time and period. Well written.
Sequel to Woman of the Silk, this book follows up on the story of PEI. She arrives in Hong Kong and starts a new life doing the war and Japanese occupation. She fights the war forces and makes a life for herself. I liked both books very much as it shows the custom and lives of the Chinese woman.
Great story. Another favorite author of mine. Her stories & writing won't dissappoint you.
If you haven't read a book by author Gail Tsukiyama, you are missing out! This book was amazing! I started out reading it just to read it because I love just about every book in the world and also because I just couldn't put it down once I picked it up. I love how strong Pei is in this book. Even though sometimes she probably really didn't want to be. This book was so loving, so touching, so inspirational. Now that I have read this book by Gail, I want to read more. She just did such a good job on this story and I bet her other ones are just as good. A book that I would never normally read turned out to be one of the most dear books to my heart. Try this one out...you won't be disappointed!
