Such a beautiful book. It left me thinking about it in days after I read it. In all the sorrow weaved in the book It is also bursting with bravery and resilience and positivity that can be found in every corner of life if you search for it. Through the book and the main story there are perfectly incorporated oriental kitchen aromas that celebrate the autor s culture besides all the bad things happening to women bound to it. Hope my daughters will read this book when they grow up.
