Editorial Review

Delectable from beginning to end, this feminist story, set in the late nineteenth century in a generic, nonspecific New World Chinatown, is delicately told and illustrated. The pictures, full of drama and movement, are equally strong in establishing a setting and depicting the characters in the story.
