Review: The Valley of Amazement

The Valley of Amazement
The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An enjoyable read following elements of ‘Memoirs of Geisha’, but without the underlying love story. The central relationship is the complicated connection between mother and daughter courtesans in turn of the century Shanghai. With issues of abandonment, mistrust and finally acceptance. The characters are strong and well rounded, except Lu Shang. You’ll have to read for yourself to see why.
