“Obey, obey, obey, then do what you want” -Lisa See, Snow Flower & the Secret Fan
Skeptical..yes – I wasn’t sure I wanted to dive into 19th century China. However, I dove and couldn’t stop swimming in this book!
Lily & Snow Flower were matched as soul mate friends at the tender age of 7. They began their relationship on a silk fan – in the secret language that Chinese women created called nu shu. Their love blossoms within these letters and without ever meeting…they share their hardships, hopes, dreams & experiences – foot binding, marriage, motherhood. A little miscommunication arises between the girls and the story shifts.
Ending wasn’t my fave – but totally recommend ‘Snow Flower & the Secret Fan’!
