Just finished this book last night. Liked it A LOT. I'm not sure how historically accurate it is, though. The portrait Min paints of the Empress Dowager is very different from others I've encountered.
I had the pleasure of meeting the author at a San Francisco Public Library event over the summer. She impressed me. It's no small task to become a bestselling author in a language that is not your first.
