The author uses the story of 3 generations or her family to reveal the story of China.
It was a tapestry that included both the personal and political histories of a place that has been shrouded in mystery.
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.
