Welcome to edition two of Wonderful Wednesdays.
Wonderful Wednesdays is a meme about spotlighting and recommending some of our most loved books, even if we haven't read them recently. Each week will have a different theme or genre of book to focus on.
This week's theme is biographies.
Part of what attracted me to this book and why I enjoyed it so much is that the lives of the three women are so different from my own. I especially enjoyed the section about Jung's mother, who is married but forced to live separately from her husband and liable to be sent anywhere for work. The sense of optimist she had about Mao coming to power was contrasted well with the sense of disappointment and fear when things started to turn nasty and the older generation starts to fear the younger.
Whilst there was a lot of history in the book (which isn't a problem for me), it was mainly a wonderfully told story of the lives of three women. I loved every page of it, and look forward to a re-read at some point in the near future.
