      Fascinating story, beautifully told, of an American young woman who goes to live as an adopted daughter with a Chinese family in 1920 I loved the descriptions of Chinese fmaily life The following descriptions of the pitfalls of the political situation in China were a little less engaging for me, but still an amazing story I wish I knew what happened to all the people in the book.
