Inspiring for all readers
Each time I sat down to read tofu quilt, I felt like I was spending a moment with the author listening to her poems face to face. Her life stories are inspiring and provide a window into a time when women were expected to be quiet - and she was not. This is a wonderful book for all types of readers!

Beautiful Story about Rejecting Society's Limitations
I could not put this book down once I started it. In the span of two hours, I managed to laugh, cry and burst with pride at Ching Yeung's adventures. Her depiction of her childhood as a girl in 1950s-1960s Hong Kong brings the reader to that time and place. I was right there with her, applauding her independence and self-will to become something society said she couldn't. And I cheered when she finally made herself and her family proud. What a wonderful power of example for young girls everywhere, no matter the culture or country. This is a beautiful story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
