Reviews

"A complex period tapestry inscribed with the age-old tragedy of love and death."--The New York Times Book Review

"Electrifying . . . a fascinating and often surprising story of women helping women, women hurting women and women misunderstanding each other."--The Miami Herald

"See mines an intriguing vein of Chinese history . . . weaving fact and fiction into a dense romantic tapestry of time and place as she meditates on the meaning of love, the necessity of self-expression and the influence of art."--Los Angeles Times

"A transporting read, to lost worlds earthly and otherwise."--Chicago Tribune

"A quietly beautiful tale that sneaks into the reader's heart . . . Not since Susie Salmon of Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones has a ghostly narrator been as believable and empathetic."--San Antonio Express-News

"There's much here to be savored and a great deal to be learned."--The Washington Post Book World
