Reviews

"A book of intelligence and heart." --AMY TAN

"Deeply preoccupied with girls, talent, and power." --MAUD NEWTON

"The best elements of a mystery story, ghost story, magical realism and the complex difficulties in deciding what is 'best' for our elders and offspring." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"[Picking Bones from Ash], so firmly anchored in a sensuous reality, veers into a dream world. A reader has the sense that even the author was driven by her most powerful character: the original mother, raising her daughter alone, shunned by villagers, forced to make decisions that haunt her descendants." --Los Angeles Times
