snow flower and the secret fan

May 31, 2011

im was so delighted to learn that one of my favorite books has been made into a film.

snow flower and the secret fan, a story of two life long friends set in 19th century china.

a time when girls bound their feet for a chance to be married into an established family.

primarily i was interested in the book for that reason alone.

i was doing research on the history of foot binding.

happily i stumbled across this fictional read written by lisa see and completely fell in love with the characters.

from the trailer i already see that i may not be pleased with the film’s adaptation.

however, it will be fun to complain about that in a future blog post.

happy reading!
