  • A breath of fresh air..

    So far removed from an everyday recreational read...extremely well written as are all of Ms. Buck's booking....highly recommend all of her work.

  • Great book

    This story gives the reader an understanding of life in the Forbidden City in the early 1800’s. I had to look up quite a few words used which is easily done in the Kobo version. The is a great read for anyone who has visited the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace in Beijing.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Pearl S Buck, wonderful author!

    I loved this book and I love the writing of Pearl S Buck. She's amazing and takes the reader right into the times she's writing about. Her characters are so well developed you feel like you've actually known them in real life. Read Buck. You won't be sorry.

  • Wonderful Story Telling

    A wonderful story by the wonderful Pearl Buck, grabs you from the beginning and takes you through the courts of the Forbidden City. I love the easy style of her writing and her knowledge of the Chinese culture is second to none. Loved it!!
