I wanted to score this review higher than I have done, but two stars covers it. I ended my reading by feeling I wanted to discover more about the infamous period of Chinese history that Chairman Mao and his wife came to dominate, which is positive. However, I found the writing disjointed and dry and it was hard to overcome my dislike of the character of Madame Mao herself, even accepting her tough start in life as the unwanted daughter of a concubine.

This is an intense story about a young girl growing up in the cultural revolution during Maoist China. It shows her struggles, her passions, her convictions, and how she made decisions in tandem with the passions of youth. These experiences were likely similar to ones many people experienced in this place and time. At times, the story feels a little slow, but it picks up towards the end.
