    The Girl Who Wrote in Silk sounds wonderful.
    I like the way Kelli took the time to really do her homework before she put pen to paper, which would have given her writing deeper authenticity.
    Looking forward to reading and thanks, Jocelyn, for a great interview.

    I think I might have heard of the book, but didn’t know it had AMWF couple 🙂 does it have AMWF couple? I have to say that Inara the name sounds more Japanese to me.

    Also am reading Everything I never told you by Celeste Ng. Really look forward to finishing the book and maybe I might email you my thoughts about it, if you’d like 🙂

    Great and thanks 🙂 In case if the author is interested in someone reading and reviewing her book, I’m open, although I might review it in late summer. (Still not sure how everything will be if all is okay and little one arrives…)

    Sounds like an interesting read. I like that she went out of her initial comfort zone and featured characters who have a different cultural background than she does.

    I haven’t read The Girl Who Wrote in Silk yet, but I’m definitely going to put it on my TBR list. Since I’m also a Seattle author who wrote a book about China, it would be a shame to pass Kelli’s book by. After a couple of visits to the Wing Luke Museum, I’ve become more aware in recent years of our shameful treatment of Chinese immigrants.
