FROM GOODREADS: Amy Tan’s latest effort unfolds a series of family secrets that questions the connection between fate, beliefs, and hopes, memory and imagination, and the natural gifts of our hundred secret senses. Years after her Chinese half-sister assails her with ghost stories set in the mysterious world of Yin, a young woman finds herself in China, looking for a way to reconcile the ghosts of her past with the dreams of her future.
MY REVIEW: A wonderful hardcover version of The Hundred Secret Senses was a present from my friend Tara, and it was truly a gift. Although it took a while to settle into the rich tapestry of the storyline, I was happy to let it slowly unfold for me. It’s a love story, really—between two sisters, between husband and wife, between two cultures. And like any love story, it’s detailed with heartache and loss, magic and surprises.
