The calm emotional authority and dramatic range of Anna Fields add depth and continuity to this powerful morality tale about how women across four generations transcend the confinement and abuse that was common in traditional Chinese culture. The strength of these characters is vivid and unforgettable. Author Irene Kai has a remarkable ability to express the ways the people in her story connect with each other in time and place, for better or worse. Reminding us that conflicts between individual dignity and absolute power are not new, Kai provides a story that will bring into question one's cultural assumptions and sense of entitlement.
