review 1: I'll admit that I'm no expert on China, so I can't really speak to the truth of the setting or believability of many of the characters in this story. That said, I really, really enjoyed the book. It was well-paced, well-written, the characters were well-developed, and even though I saw most of the "twists" coming, that was ok- as it's really laid out more as a "crime novel" than a "mystery." I would definitely read more from this author!
review 2: This book was a fast read, filled with intrigue! Fa-ling visits China with a group of couples who will be adopting Chinese babies. She travels with this group so that she can go back to her birthplace and make peace with her past. Her story, alone, would have made this novel compelling. There are too many coincide
... morences in this story, but they do tie in together nicely to make this story interesting. less

Just started but I love the way Donna sets the scene.
Great read!
