    Story
    (232)

    Few books have had such an impact as Wild Swans: a popular best seller which has sold more than 13 million copies and a critically acclaimed history of China; a tragic tale of nightmarish cruelty and an uplifting story of bravery and survival.

    Mike says: "A real shocker!"
    "Reveals the Evolution of Communism in China."

    The author uses the story of 3 generations or her family to reveal the story of China.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a tapestry that included both the personal and political histories of a place that has been shrouded in mystery.

    Story

    Thirty-eight year old Cassandra is lost, alone, and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident 10 years ago, feels like she has lost everything known and dear to her.

    avid reader says: "Hours of enjoyable, fun listening"
    "Entertaining"

    Story

    The author creates a story unfolding layer by layer making it a page turner. I found myself delighted at every turn. Some I saw coming and some I didn't. No profound themes here (except perhaps our connectedness with the past) but a solidly entertaining story.
