Teaser Tuesdays: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan



Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

"To that end, my goal was to chieve a pair of perfectly bound feet with seven distinct attributes: The should be small, narrow, straight, pointed, and arched, yet still fragrant and soft in texture. Of these requirements, length is most important."

The descriptions of the foot-binding process were grotesque. It was horrifying and disgusting but I couldn't put the book down.

I've wanted to read this for a long time. I definitely need to get on this before the movie comes out.
