    In her beloved New York Times best sellers Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, and, most recently, Shanghai Girls, Lisa See has brilliantly illuminated the potent bonds of mother love, romantic love, and love of country. Now, in her most powerful novel yet, she returns to these timeless themes, continuing the story of sisters Pearl and May from Shanghai Girls, and Pearl’s strong-willed 19-year-old daughter, Joy.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dreams of Joy to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version but the story is excellent so I am sure the print version is also.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The history.


    Have you listened to any of Janet Song’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to 'Shanghi Girls' first then this one.


    Who was the most memorable character of Dreams of Joy and why?

    Rose. She was able to tell most all sides of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    At times this story was emotionally draining because the story seemed so real.

    Story

    In 17th-century Persia, a 14-year-old woman believes she will be married within the year. When her beloved father dies, she and her mother find themselves alone and without a dowry. With nowhere else to go, they are forced to sell the brilliant turquoise rug the young woman has woven to pay for their journey to Isfahan, where they will work as servants for her uncle, a rich rug designer in the court of the legendary Shah Abbas the Great.

    Shaddi says: "I loved this book!"
    "Monotone"
    Overall

    This would be a great book to read because the story line is very interesting but the narrator stinks. I am trying to force myself to listen to this and she is driving me crazy with her monotone voice. I want my money back.
