Forged From Silver DollarForged From Silver Dollar by Li Feng

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very fascinating look at three generations of Chinese women. I found this to be an enthralling read and I learnt a lot about how insidious the slow rise to change of power is. We see what it was like before the Communist rule, we see what it was like under the CP rule and we see what it is like for women today in China.

The three women are all very different characters and each has their strengths and weaknesses that make a whole in Li Feng as she draws from her history to tell her ancestor’s stories.

A great read for anybody who loved Amy Tan’s ‘Wild Swans’

Loved it!
