This story transported me to exotic and lush locations. The voices of the women as they reflected on the events of the past were vivid and audible to me. In some ways this is an excellent vacation book, but I could easily see it becoming a favorite of the book club circuit.

This was a wonderful story about tradition and family and the secrets and lies they have. It was well written and I felt like I got to know each character just enough to care about their individual stories. There were surprises but also events I saw coming but I could not put this book down. Just ask the family I ignored over Christmas. I cannot wait for another story from Cecily Wong.

Loved the characters.. This is a story of women: mothers, daughters, grandmothers and their loves. Set in China and Hawaii, this is a saga of a family: the good, the bad, warts and all. The story shifts between characters and time - and this helps to keep the novel moving. Just excellent. The novel includes: mistakes in love, faithful love, surprising love, the red string that ties love, the loss of love ones, and more. This book deserves an A+++++

Although I mainly read non-fiction, often supplemented by science fiction on relaxing vacations, as a fiction newbieI was surprised and captivated by Cecile Wong's beautiful, rich, artful and intriguing storytelling. Diamond Head is a thoughtful exploration of the place of "fated" love, responsibility, passion, loss, deceit, "truth" and hope in our lives, thru the eyes and stories of three generations of secret-keeping daughters and wives brought together by a funeral and bound, according to legend, by their intertwining "red string of fate." This new author's storytelling is powerful and addicting! Just like my favorite science fiction, I had trouble putting it down and am looking forward to her next storytelling masterpiece. Highly recommend as a personal and book club selection!!

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Historical fiction mixed with a look at cultures and traditions - it was so good! Diamond Head is the story of the women of Frank Leong's life - from his wife to his daughter in law to his grandchild and beyond. The current storyline is taking place as they bury Bohai who is a father, son, husband and brother. The women take themselves back in time to tell the stories that brought all of them to this moment. I loved how each woman went back in time to tell her own story and how they interconnected.
