Small great things

The book developed characters quickly with back stories that were informative and with great insight.
The plot development gave the reader an opportunity to challenge their own belief systems and awareness of others and their set of circumstances. We all aren't offered the same life opportunities! The book is timely and although difficult at times - challenging because of its topic it is an important read

Old fashioned classic

Refreshing to reread a childhood favorite. Had forgotten most of the story line. It was sweet.. too much detail for my taste but a lighter read

an insiightful and thought provoking book on many levels. Womens issues, sexuality, homosexuality at the turn of last century. Orphan trains, and plight of unwed mothers- as well as a charming story of good intentions and positive growth

insightful and historic

Lisa See continues to research and provide great historical facts and insights in her latest work. I was unaware of the mountain people of China and Thailand, and completely amazed by the culture, superstitions-that dominate the tea world. Gave me a greater understanding of tea as well as the strength and courage of women

not my fav

a very dispointing read after enjoying Strout's other wonderful novels. I anticipated an addictive and enthralling tail, only to find that at the end I was left wondering if I somehow missed the point of the novel...

I found this book difficult to put down. It was compelling and brilliantly written.
I was intrigued by the strength of the human spirit - the book provided an insight into finding the joy and perseverance of our fragile existence. Kya was a charter with incredible internal strength
And perseverance.through her difficult life
Surprised at the ending- the writing is brilliant
Can’t wait to read more by the author ...!
