I am a former stay-at-home mom who has given up her hopes and dreams of becoming a professional reader. I now spend my days showing small children how to play games on computers. Right now I'm living vicariously through my 9 year-old who is reading everything she can get her hands on.
It's not just the cover of this book that is stunning. The words inside are stunning too. The author has such a way of describing things with such grace. My favorite part so far has been the description of Mei's pregnancy. I, too, have known what it feels like to be as graceful as a yellow ox. Of course, with my twins, it was more like a beached whale than a yellow ox.
