Reviews

"Lisa See has written her best book yet. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is achingly beautiful, a marvel of imagination of a real and secret world that has only recently disappeared. It is a story so mesmerizing the pages float away and the story remains clearly before us from beginning to end."--Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club and The Opposite of Fate: A Book of Musings

"I was mesmerized by this wondrous book-the story of a secret civilization of women, who actually lived in China not long ago. . . . Magical, haunting fiction. Beautiful."--Maxine Hong Kingston, author of The Fifth Book of Peace

"Only the best novelists can do what Lisa See has done, to bring to life not only a character but an entire culture, and a sensibility so strikingly different from our own. This is an engrossing and completely convincing portrayal of a woman shaped by suffering forced upon her from her earliest years, and of the friendship that helps her to survive."
-Arthur Golden, author of Memoirs of a Geisha

"[A] marvelous narrative . . . a timeless portrait of a contentious, full-blooded female friendship."--Entertainment Weekly (Editor's Choice)

"An achingly beautiful, understated and absorbing story of love [that] evokes the work of Jane Austen."--Cleveland Plain Dealer

"A triumph on every level, a beautiful, heartbreaking story."--Washington Post Book World

"Both heartbreaking and heartbreakingly lovely . . . immerses the reader in an unimagined world . . . The characters and their surroundings come vibrantly alive."--Denver Post
