In Women of the Silk Gail Tsukiyama takes her readers back to rural China in 1926, where a group of women forge a sisterhood amidst the reeling machines that reverberate and clamor in a vast silk factory from dawn to dusk. Leading the first strike the village has ever seen, the young women use the strength of their ambition, dreams, and friendship to achieve the freedom they could never have hoped for on their own.

As with "A Hundred Flowers", this book captured me from the start. The characters, surrounded by the culture and life as a silk worker, combined to make a journey into China's past come to life. Thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more by Tsukiyama.

This is a very readable book, with dynamic and believable characters. I enjoyed the friendships that were created during times of difficulty. Tsukiyama does an excellent job of drawing you into their world, and making you sympathetic to their struggles. I also admired the resiliency and strength she displayed in the characters.
