Book Recommendation | "The Valley of Amazement" by Amy Tan | by Melody R.

The Valley of Amazement is a multi-generational story that moves between a first class courtesan house in 19th-century Shanghai to a mountain village in rural China to a San Francisco we hardly can envision. Told in the first person by "Violet" and then by her mother "Lucia," we are introduced to Chinese life both shocking and evocative.

I love Amy Tan's books because they're not only enjoyable to read, they're also historically accurate giving you a snapshot picture of life in China. - Melody R.
