While its possible that my liking of this story is primarily driven by my liking for the illustrations (I'm a sucker for good oil paintings!), I think it has more to do with the fact that Ching Yeung Russell writes so well about her own upbringing. In many of her stories, the main character is a girl seperated from her parents or extended family by the border between mainland China and one of the bordering territories. I like this story for its careful mixture of joy and sorrow. The story is one that left me thinking after I finished, and I think that's the sign of good writing in many instances. ( )
