    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"
    "Intriguing and Creative Story!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Peony in Love again? Why?

    Yes, I liked the readers voice and felt connected to the story through her words. This often makes me like a book more or less and I think she was a perfect fit for the role!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought it was really creative how she delved into history and created an imaginative story that is based on some events. I enjoyed the research that she did into the time period and found myself researching more about the history.


    What does Janet Song bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I felt that she brought the book to life, and really enjoyed listening to her.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The description of the scenery in the gardens and the isolation.
