Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is one of those books that is able to exceed great expectations. My sister let me borrow this book after telling me what a moving story it was and how much she loved it. I am easily disappointed whenever my expectations are influenced by a great deal of hype, but I read it with an open mind. I am happy to say that Snow Flower did not disappoint in the least bit. The story is about the friendship of Lily and Snow Flower, and their destinies at a time in a culture that predetermines life by birth. Though the bond shared by Lily and Snow Flower is special, like all relationships, it is imperfect. We read about the triumphs and challenges that the characters face as individuals and how their friendship transcends the events and changes that come about with life and time. The author illustrates the complexities and magnitude of emotions of a lifelong friendship and we see the importance of loyalty and forgiveness and the insignificance of bitterness and grudge. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a beautiful and emotional story that is both entertaining and memorable.Read More
This book was so good, I think it took me two days to read it. The characters were well formed, and there were times I think I almost physically felt their pain. It truely gives you a certain respect for the culture.Read More

It is informative - the way things were for girls getting their feet bound, but not an entertaining read. I've certainly read better authors' workRead More
At the heart of "Snow Flower and The Secret Fan" is a bond two women from different backgrounds form with one another. This is a story about their relationship. It is about hardships and realizations that ultimately transcend era, gender, ethnicity. This is a well written moving story. I saw the characters vividly and I heartily felt their pain and loss.Read More

This was a wonderful book about the bond between two women at a difficult time in Chinese history. I am fascinated with some of the customs discussed in the book and am doing my own research to find out more. It was very moving, sad, joyous and poignant. I have given it to my best friend to read. I totally enjoyed it.Read More

I actually haven't read the book yet, but I had purchased 10 copies to distribute for my turn to host my book club.

So I suppose that says all I need to say!Read More
