Lisa See is such an amazing writer. She has a gift for taking her reader into the lives, minds and hearts of her characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, even doing some research into the Ahka people, pu-erh tea and tea cakes. I loved the main character and how her culture influenced her life even when she lived in the modern world. The ending was beautiful. I would highly recommend this book.

I learned a lot about the history of tea and the customs of this remote village. I was surprised that some of the customs were being practiced as recently as they were. I loved the story and the main character, Li-Yan. She was intelligent, dutifully paid for the mistakes she made. She persevered, remained true to her heritage. Loved the ending. Satisfying and not drawn out.
