I've got some good books in !
China in the late nineteenth century was a turbulent time. Internal strife amongst warring clans and humiliating foreign invasions diminished China's power. This one woman held it all.
The First Pharoah was a win from the author himself. Looking forward very much to this one.
A particularly interesting period of English history and an interesting story to boot.
Described as the traditions and trials of ancient womanhood, this cover appealed to me as well.

I am still reading The Emperor's Children. Have finished Chimneys by Agatha Christie and am almost done with The Last Empress which is breath taking when you also think of the research which would have gone into writing this book.
