    Mastretta tiene una forma de contar la historia en una forma increible, sensilla que vez los personajes en personas cerca de ti, la tia, uno mismo. La forma de manejar la lengua espanola es fascinante.

    Seventeen-year-old Orchid belongs to an aristocratic family that has fallen on hard times. Unexpectedly, she is chosen as one of the emperor's lesser concubines. Within the Forbidden City are thousands of women hoping to bear the emperor a son and become his empress. Orchid, determined and resourceful, schemes her way into the royal bed and seduces the emperor. But as the opium trade erodes the might of the Ch'ing dynasty, Orchid find herself at the center of a crumbling nation.

    I love the book, Anchee Min did a good job to bring you inside the life of the book since the first page, the history, the culture, the family structure not only of the emperor but Orchid family too.

    Story

    From a rippled zinc shack in rural Puerto Rico to "the better life" in a decaying Brooklyn tenement, Esmeralda Santiago's Puerto Rican childhood is one of sorcery, smoldering war between the sexes, and high comedy. Hers is a portrait of a harsh but enchanted world that can never be reclaimed.

    Jeanne says: "Touching"
    "Una vida normal entre los latinoamericanos."

    Story

    Santiago tiene una forma de contar las historias del pasado como si las estuviera viviendo, No he terminado el libro, pero es una historia de familia bien contada y que me recuerda muchas de las mias.
