China Dolls

By Lisa See

In the beginning of See's stellar ninth book, three young women, Grace, Helen, and Ruby, meet and form an unlikely but strong bond in San Francisco in 1938. .The story alternates between their viewpoints, with each woman's voice strong and dynamic, developing a multilayer richness as it progresses. The depth of See's characters and her winning prose make this book a wonderful journey through love and loss. Publishers Weekly Review
