Received this in the mail today. Thanks a lot for adding it to the VBB, mathgirl40. I'm looking forward to reading it (might take a while though... Mt. TBR...)
And thanks for the lovely postcard: Canadian beaver at work

Journal Entry 4 by wingApoloniaXwing at Bremen, Bremen Germany on Wednesday, November 23, 2011
A very ambitious first novel, quite a pageturner, a great read! It's focused mostly on cultural identity, but there are many other themes in this novel, migration, family, Alzheimers, bulimia, Chinese history, the role of women in China, prostitution etc. Deanna Fei gives excellent character descriptions - rather complex, all with their own flaws - and explores their relationships with each other. I liked the alternating perspectives, and what I also enjoyed were the depictions of landscapes and cities in China. Recommendable.

Thank you SO much for this wonderful surprise. Life has been challenging lately, and this act of kindness made my day.

Thanks again for sharing this book, ApoloniaX! It's an ambitious (perhaps a bit overly ambitious) story about the complicated relationships within Irene's family and the desire to know where one belongs. My favourite character was Kay; I felt that she was the one I got to know best.
