Every Monday, I check in with two incredible writers. We cheer each other on. We read each other's manuscripts. We form our own little circle of support and admiration. Many months ago, one of those women asked if I would take a look at one of her new manuscripts and see if I had any ideas or suggestions.
What followed was an amazing story so infused with love. It was called The Scavenger's Daughters and it was written by Kay Bratt. Kay lived in China for five years, working at an orphanage, and is now a child advocate. The Scavenger's Daughters is inspired by a true story.
I grew up in San Francisco, and the sounds and flavors of Chinese culture are as comforting as macaroni and cheese out of the blue box or fried chicken. What I loved so much about this book was that she somehow captured the musicality of the language, the turns of phrase, and the beauty of China and its people.
If you're looking for a lovely read, The Scavenger's Daughters is now available on Amazon. Enjoy!
