  "Dreams of Joy" by trish8399 (see profile) 03/05/12

This book is a sequel to 'The Shanghai Girls' which I loved. Our Book Club has read most of Lisa See's books and has a SKYPE engagement with her coming up. You do not have to read the first book, although it would be helpful. The books tells the story of two. Chinese sisters and focuses on "their" daughter. Although it is historical fiction, much about the time period is true with the author doing much research and having Chinese heritage. Lisa See tells her stories in a truly interesting and loving way. The book is awesome and our Book Club gave it a thumbs up for sure!

Picks up right where Shanghai Girls leaves off. The characters are well developed and the story engulfs you in an adventure with the characters where you feel their emotions and feel as though you are right there with them. Fabulous writing!

The author captures her characters well. Her research into the Chinese culture is sincere, non judgmental and offers us, as readers some visions into communism in China.
