Quyen Ngo is a firm feminist voice for this historical novel about two famed Vietnamese sisters who worked together to save their country from Chinese domination--in CE 40, no less. Fans of world literature will find much to admire in this fast-paced, lyrical story, told by a confident narrator. The sisters' privileged lives fall apart after the murder of their father amid the unrelenting pressure of the encroaching Chinese. Ngo captures the sisters' youthful spirit and steely determination as they unite their people against a colonial adversary. This will be a new tale to many, one that Ngo brings vividly to life.
