"Civil war China is fractured by social and political change. Behind the magnificent gates of the Song family estate, however, none of this upheaval has touched Leiyin, a spoiled and idealistic teenager. But when Leiyin meets the captivating left-wing poet Hanchin, she defies her father and learns a harsh reality: that her father has the power to dictate her fate. Leiyin's punishment for disobedience leads to exile from her family, an unwanted marriage and ultimately a lover's betrayal - followed by her untimely death. Now a ghost, Leiyin must make amends to earn entry to the afterlife..."--

Great on setting, plot & character. Couldn't put it down. The narrator is a young ghost telling her own story. First novel by a Vancouver writer, waiting eagerly for her next one. Highly recommended.

A very nice story about a woman who has to make amends in death for mistakes she made in life. This is a well crafted book and enjoyable to read. It would make a good choice for those of you who belong to book clubs.

This is one of the best novels I've read in 2013. Reminded me a lot of the Chinese classic 'Story of the Stone'.
