    For young Peony, betrothed to a suitor she has never met, lyrics from The Peony Pavilion mirror her own longings. In the garden of the Chen Family Villa, amid the scent of ginger, green tea, and jasmine, a small theatrical troupe is performing scenes from this epic opera, a live spectacle few females have ever seen. Like the heroine in the drama, Peony is the cloistered daughter of a wealthy family, trapped like a good-luck cricket in a bamboo-and-lacquer cage.

    L. Swartz says: "Unusual and excellent book"
    "Way too long"
    Overall

    I agree with the last reviewer. The story had much potential, but at this point I need another 3 hours (total about 12), and I know the only thing that keeps me listening is waiting for the story to get to the point. The author could have pulled this off in about half the time. I don't know that I can continue.
