Lisa See's most recent book.

Dreams of Joy: Sequel to Shanghai Girls. Better than the first. Not as good as Snow Flower and the Secret Fan or Peony in Love.

Shanghai Girls

Goes behind the scenes about the life of well-to-do girls during the chic and luxurious age in Shanghai suddenly going through a war torn China. Their struggles becomes a life long lesson in family, loss, love, life and perserverance.

Read other novels by Lisa See, but none of them moved me as much as this one.

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan- what a wonderful book full of struggles and experiences for women

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Land by Lisa See: "No coincidence, no story" binds this story from beginning to end - from Li-yan's life as a member of the Akha tribe in a remote mountain village in China to contemporary China. This is an interesting story that binds old traditions with new beginnings, taking us into the world of the Akha tribe, the significance of tea in China and the world, and the modernization of China.

Lisa See's The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane is one of our recommended historical fiction books to read this year.
