Fiction. Literature. Historical Fiction. HTML:NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER??A complex period tapestry inscribed with the age-old tragedy of love and death.???The New York Times Book Review

??I finally understand what the poets have written. In spring, moved to passion; in autumn only regret.?

In seventeenth-century China, in an elaborate villa on the shores of Hangzhou??s West Lake, Peony lives a sheltered life. One night, during a theatrical performance in her family??s garden, Peony catches sight of an elegant, handsome man and is immediately overcome with emotion. So begins Peony??s unforgettable journey of love and destiny, desire and sorrow, the living world and the afterworld. Eventually expelled from all she??s known, Peony is thrust into a realm where hungry ghosts wander the earth, written words have the power to hurt and kill, and dreams are as vivid as waking life. Lisa See??s novel, based on actual historical events, evokes vividly another time and place??where three generations of women become enmeshed in a dramatic story, uncover past secrets and tragedies, and learn that love can transcend death. Peony in Love will make you ache in heart and mind for young Peony and all the women of the world who want to be heard.
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lisa See's Shanghai Girls.

Read the first hundred small-print pages, skimmed the rest. Dreary. ( )

Can't say this was my favorite Lisa See book.
Her books are so well researched, opening up worlds that I knew nothing or little about. She describes foot binding in such detail, I thought my feet would start hurting. She describes so well the role of women and the bonds they share.
The problem I had with this book was that it really got bogged down in detail for me. This book is fascinating on many levels, but was a slow read. ( )

This was my least favorite Lisa See's books. I enjoyed Snowflower and Shanghi Girls so much I was expecting more of that. This was more of a ghost story/cultural lesson/fantasy story and it just never grabbed me. The ghost story part especially seemed pretty predictable from the beginning pages. ( )

After reading "Snowflower and the Secret Fan" I was eager to read another of Lisa See's books. However, perhaps due to timing, I didn't connect with the character, a young girl and later her spirit. I lost interest and didn't complete the book. ( )
