This book to me, captures the essence of being a mother. What it feels like to BE a mother. As a new mom this book appealed to me because it shows you your life at a different angle. Our life passes so quickly, as the old adage goes, 'time flies'.
This novel is set in China from a peasant woman's perspective. Her inner voice resonated with me, though we may come from different backgrounds, time, and circumstances all (most) mothers share some inner bond with one another. Meaning the world is just looked at differently once you are a mother and this book gets that and communicates that concept to the reader.
I found this book to be:
*emotionally and intellectually stimulating
*a good book to escape from the everyday
*can be read more than once and still likely to learn something new
