More Praise for Peony in Love

“I have read On Gold Mountain and Snowflower and the Secret Fan. I believe Peony In Love is Lisa See’s best novel yet. As always, the storytelling kept me completely absorbed, and the trip through the afterlife was unforgettable. I plan to recommend it to my book club at our next meeting.”

— Mary Schreiner

“Lisa See has done it again. Peony In Love is not only an interesting read but filled with the history and culture of the Chinese women. To be entertained and educated at the same time is such a treat The manner in which Lisa See intertwines the novel with the opera The Peony Pavilion is mesmerizing and a work of literary genius.”

—Mary Healey, Avon, Ct.

“I’m a really big fan of Lisa See’s Snow Flower and the Secret Fan so I wasn’t sure she could pull off another story as great but she did. Not only will I recommend this book to other book clubs, I’ll pass along the recommendation to EVERYONE. This one has innocence, devastation, and joy–something for nearly everyone who loves the intriguing mystery of the Asian culture. It will certainly go down as a favorite for the year.”

–Anne Glasgow, Austin TX

“As anticipated, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It is a beautiful love story! I am meeting with my book club tonight and will be recommending that we read it this summer. This is definitely a book suggestion that I know will be accepted. All I have to say is that it’s written by Lisa See and just as wonderful as “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” and they’ll say yes.”

“I enjoyed it very much even though this is not a genre I usually take to. It was an enchanting book that is sure to do well.”

–Amanda Ishtayeh from Mason, Ohio

“This was an enjoyable read & especially as it was historical fiction I had suggested Snow Flower & the Secret Fan to both my book clubs who read it We seem to be on a Mid Eastern & Eastern kick at present so I will suggest Peony next.”

Agnes Buckley in NC

“The intriguing story of Chinese culture and their understanding of the afterlife was fascinating and to learn about women in mid seventeenth century China who were published authors was so surprising. Lisa See has once again combined history with fiction to tell an amazing story.”
