Songs of Willow Frost

Songs of Willow Frost

by Laine Moriarity

Judy Stanton (05/07/14): From the author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet comes another wonderful work of historical fiction that exposes the reader to life in the 1930s in Seattle for Chinese Americans. I was drawn in not only by the story of a young boy in an Orphanage seeking to find his mother, but learning and recalling the issues faced by Chinese women, who lacked status, especially if they were single mothers and if they worked as performers. The Orphanage reminded me of the movie Philomena, with dictatorial nuns offering little warmth to their young charges, especially those of color. Jamie Ford is an excellent writer, I was carried away to another place and time with characters I cared about, hoping for a positive resolution. Highly recommend!
