TLC book club; very good fictionalized biography of Pearl Buck, as told by her childhood friend Willow. It stays with Willow in China, even after Pearl leaves for America and starts getting her work published.

Thank you so so much for this book. I have been so. Wanting this book and be restrained from buying it. As I got so many to read. But to having it through the post as gift there is no guilt involved. Haha.

I will message back here when I have read it.

I so loved this book. I think personally it isn't the best book this author has written. But I still love how she transports you too a completely different world.

It is a such a moving page turner that once you into it, it is hard to put down. I have only just finished it and I will miss reading it.

I was quite shocked at the end as I didn't know her books where banned in China. I just wonder what Chinese people would think about them?

I know the stories aren't 100% truth too protect peoples identities etc. But they still move me with the love, struggle, and friendships that are held in her books.

I can't wait for the next installment of her books.
