Journal Entry 3 by LFLHunter at Burlington, Ontario Canada on Thursday, November 2, 2023
A wonderful gift from KarenBC! I've read a few Chinese historical fiction books, and enjoyed them. I hope I'll like this one as well.

From Chapters: Ruth Young and her widowed mother, LuLing, have always had a tumultuous relationship. Now, before she succumbs to forgetfulness, LuLing gives Ruth some of her writings, which reveal a side of LuLing that Ruth has never known. . . .

In a remote mountain village where ghosts and tradition rule, LuLing grows up in the care of her mute Precious Auntie as the family endures a curse laid upon a relative known as the bonesetter. When headstrong LuLing rejects the marriage proposal of the coffinmaker, a shocking series of events are set in motion–all of which lead back to Ruth and LuLing in modern San Francisco. The truth that Ruth learns from her mother’s past will forever change her perception of family, love, and forgiveness.

Nov 2023 Review: I really enjoyed this book, the first part of the book was the story of a woman caring for her Mother and learning about her past in China. The middle of her book tells the story of the Mother, in China and her unique story, as it slowly unravels. The last parts of the book tie everything together, beautifully written. I would love to learn more about Peking Man.
