Wow! Had to Share this Review!
Julianne of Yorkshire, U.K. chose The Green Phoenix for her Goodreads Group's ("For Love of a Book" Group) World Libraries Challenge 2019.
I had to share her lovely review:
"The story of Bumbutai, a Mongolian princess who became the revered Grand Dowager Empress Xiaozhuang, unfolds against the backdrop of the fall of the Ming dynasty and the rise of the Manchu Qing.
I can't say enough about how much I loved this book. The story telling vividly brought the characters and political machinations to life.
Reading this sent me on a journey back in time and through a huge emotional range, from curiosity to anger to love to laughter.
I honestly can't think of the last time I loved a book so much.
I read this because of the For The Love Of A Book groups World Libraries Challenge for 2019, one of the challenges was to read a Book with a MPG of Historical Fiction set in China or Japan. After hours of browsing Goodreads I found The Green Phoenix and I was so glad I did."
