Just finished reading this story and it has left me feeling so sad and introspective! (and SO GLAD I have 'big flipping fish feet'! ) An excellent historical novel that follows Lily and her friend Snowflower, their traditional lifestyles and the relationships that develop in rural China. SAD STORY, but a very good read. Check out Lisa See on the internet to see pictures of Bound feet = ouch!
