This epic family saga begins in the high mountains of China where wild tea trees grow some of the most sought after tea in the world The people are known as the Akha people one of 55 minority groups in a country whose majority group is called HanWith her renowned attention to detail and copious research Lisa See has created a story that is as broad and sweeping as China itself yet her characters are formed like the most delicately detailed paintings and the story itself flows like skillfully inscribed calligraphyThe story encompasses the growing pains of a culture that is propelled from history and tradition into modern times and modern economics It centers on whole families and broken families taboos and breaks with tradition superstition versus education centuries of secrets versus technology s all seeing eyes separations and reunions and the role that tea plays out through generations of living in the high elevations where the most precious tea trees flourishThis story also has branches reaching outward to California and through the lives of our characters we follow the links and connections between people that eventually bring them back to their roots and to reuniting with their familiesThis is such an interesting captivating and deeply stirring read that it is only when I had to set the book down that I realized how much I was also learning I highly recommend this wonderful book that is so rich in texture deeply moving and consummately satisfying

The book was good but it got slow there in the middle like at some points I was totally into it and then it would just get tedious There were just parts of it that felt superfluous and they didn t add much to the story Also I thought that maybe the growth in the characters could have been subtle and developed over the course of the book and it would have added depth And just what was the thing with her ending up married to some rich guy and then life is perfect the ending was a little too much for me with everyone being great but it s fiction I guess I did enjoy the characters and the immersive writing that let me experience the culture and values vividly The topic is such a relevant one of changing cultures and commodification through globalization and trade The story circled back around in the end which was great and unexpected because I didn t think they d end up meeting I mean until like the last chapter by then you know it s obviousI would read it if you enjoy fiction relevant to the cultural and societal changes in the present Narratives have a way of making us understand things empathetically than we would otherwise
