Loved this book! So beautifully written...it gave me insight into the characters and the time period when it took place. A+ book!
A wonderful book, intelligently written, about the lives and secrets of a nineteenth century family. It takes you from San Francisco's Chinatown, to the turmoli of political unrest and civil war in Chile.
A great book. Took me longer to read than other books because the descriptive intricate writing I did not want to miss, but a moving story about a woman finding her origins in the late 1880's all the way up to the early 1900's. Also has some good historical fiction/nonfiction about ChilÃ© and Chinatown in the late 1880's. Not a book I would normally read, but read after good reviews here and would recommend again!
A book with generations of wonderful characters. My book discussion group loved it and it has become one of our favorites so far!
What a wonderful story! The characters are rich and well defined. Don't miss it!
