Publisher's Summary

In Women of the Silk, Gail Tsukiyama takes listeners back to rural China in 1926, where a group of women forge a sisterhood amid the reeling machines that reverberate and clamor in a vast silk factory from dawn to dusk. 

Leading the first strike the village has ever seen, the young women use the strength of their ambition, dreams, and friendship to achieve the freedom they could never have hoped for on their own. 

Tsukiyama's graceful prose weaves the details of "the silk work" and Chinese village life into a story of courage and strength.

Critic Reviews

"Enlivened with an engrossing richness of detail...succinct and delicate." (New York Times Book Review)
