Dreams of Joy by Lisa See - Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists
I just finished listening to another good audio novel. It is the only work by Lisa See that I am acquainted with. The 13 cds are well recorded by the reader Janet Song. The novel will improve your understanding of the PRC of the 1950s including the New Society movement. It may also help you to understand the Chinese immigrant experience. If you are a woman you are likely to cry with a joy of recognition. I shed a couple of tears myself. It is also a bit of a coming of age story for a young woman.
