The author and narrator told a story of a young girl who grew into a woman with the progression of gained knowledge. She found herself through her experiences (ex. cleanliness) and was able to bring herself up in social status as she gained more knowledge about midwifery. She used this knowledge to help others but was not so conceited that she didn't realize there was more to learn. On the whole it as a wonderful read.
This is a great story and easy to follow once you recognize the narrators manner of speech;
However the sound is very poor at the end and chapter 20 is basically a lot of noise..Poor recording quality.
I really enjoyed this book It was very interesting and I received greater insight into the
Chinese culture while listening to a well told story. I have recommended it to my friends and will look for the work of this author and narrators again. Thanks for the entertainment
This book hit home as I have been looking after my mother and although she was older than Alice, it gave me an insight into what Mom was feeling as this illness took over her mind. Now as I age , I may be more aware of what is happening to me and so will my daughter. I have read 3 of Lisa's book and each one gave me insight. They are worth reading more than one.
I am really enjoying this audio book. The author has written it very well and the narrator is fantastic. I will be sorry when it ends.
This is one of the most fantastic books I have listened to in a long time. I had trouble shutting it off to get anything else done. When she had her accident I thought all hope was gone. I shut off my MP3 player, removed my glasses and wept crocodile tears. Not only was the book well written, but it was also well read. I will listen to more of her books in the future. Thank you Susan.
