Decent read and pretty entertaining if you are a fan of Rivers. A bit predictable but funny too.

Interesting perspectives on the Chinese and a lot of good history thrown in. It was fun to follow the lives of the characters. I thought River Town (also by Peter Hessler) was a better book.

Francine Rivers is one of my favorite Christian authors. "Redeeming Love" is my most favorite book of all time, except the Bible. "Her Mother's Hope" and the sequel, "Her Daughter's Dream" are a gift to my daughter for Christmas. Both my daughters have read all her books and these two books will be shared with both daughters and myself. I haven't read these two books, but based on her previous books, I know they will be outstanding.

An instant classic, I couldn't put this book down or get it out of my head, I couldn't stop reading it. MacDonald has created Pulitzer Prize literature, it ranks right up there with the best of the literary classics. I read it in two days. Elizabeth MacDonald also ranks right up there with David McCullough or Hilary Mantel as one of the greatest writers of our time. The writing is just so elegant and gorgeous, it reads like a Cheever novel wrapped in a work of history wrapped in a suspense novel. I've read Margery Kempe books, but this is the very first time ever Margery's story is put in its proper historical context, as an historical narrative, what exactly was going on around Margery in Catholic England right before Joan of Arc was executed, its darkest and its most little known period in history. The latter chapters read just as hilarious as Chaucer's Canterbury tales. Elizabeth's original, imaginative dialogue writing of Margery's constant fights with fellow pilgrims, and the bishops & clerics frustration and debates over what to do about Margery read just like the funniest movie scenes you ever saw. Just the thrilling, brilliantly written chapter alone on the heated, back and forth debate between Archbishop Thomas Arundel and his clerics on how to get rid of Lollard heretics, and the fact that Elizabeth imagined how they finally shockingly came to their decision, a death penalty that became England's first burning at the stake in its history, is Pulitzer material. Read how Elizabeth imagined the first martyr of the Protestant Reformation, William Sawtrey's homily citing Dismas and Jesus on the cross, or Margery's husband's letter to her, and you'll cry, I cried. This is better than a Phillipa Gregory novel. And her argument that 'Margery is the patron saint of gossip' is groundbreaking. Buy this book now, it's the best of the year. A book by one of the country's best and most gifted business journalists, who now ranks right up there as one of our greatest historical novelists. Kudos, Elizabeth, write more books!

This book was supposed to have advanced micro-macrame designs, but they are beginner level. If you have books by Kris Buchanan or Joan Babcock, this book will not add to your knowledge or skills. If you don't, this book has great instructions, nice pictures and pretty projects.
