free download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Amanda Roberts review Threads of Silk 103 When I was a child I thought my destiny was to live and die on the banks of the Xiangjiang River as my family had done for generations I never imagined that my life would lead me to the Forbidden Cit. This was a flowing and lyrical story The imagery is beautiful and while the story unfolds slowly it s a lovely floating taleThe actual contents and events aren t beautiful though Yaian does not have an easy life as a young girl in China at the end of the 1800s The historical events are told uite well with enough detail that I never got lost but I was also never overwhelmed either This balance is maintained by keeping the focus on Yaian and her lifeThis is a character driven story for sure and it s told with a very intriguing protagonist I loved the look at the history of this era in China and at what life was like for a woman at that time The prose is why I love the story though It s just so magical and lyrical I d recommend it to lovers of historical fiction Grichenland im Zweiten Weltkrieg recommend it to lovers of historical fiction

free download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Amanda Roberts review Threads of Silk 103 Y and the court of China’s last EmpressBorn in the middle of nowhere Yaian a little embroidery girl from Hunan Province finds her way to the imperial court a place of intrigue desire and treachery. I think any comparisons to Snow Flower and the Secret Fan are inevitable for anyone who has read both and that this book The similarities are certainly there women beginning their lives with foot binding and this binding changing their destinies In my opinion Snow Flower is a better book However there are a lot of good things to say about Threads of Silk The central concept of embroidery providing a reason for the character s elevation to the Royal Court of the dying ing Dynasty was interesting me Similarly I found the relationships Yaian had with both the men and women around here shaped by the traditions and rules of the time were fascinating I especially loved how true to life her romantic relationship turned out to be The problems were two fold too much show don t tell and too long of a bookIf the former were reduced the latter would no longer be an issue Threads of Silk especially by the end begins to have pages of historical facts in between its fiction Whilst I understand why they were there my interest is in the experience of Yaian and I felt the book looses its pace when it veers from historical fiction to non fiction Overall an interesting read for fans of a Chinese historical fiction setting but nothing revolutionary other than the Boxer Rebellion which plays a large role to be found here
