Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Dreams of Joy - Lisa See This one turned out to be very good, very intense and very satisfying. Pearl, May and Joy's stories are continued from Shanghai Girls, with quite a few twists and turns. Chilling, but probably accurate look, at Communist China in the late 1950's and the Great Leap Forward. Some scenes are very grim in content so sensitive readers should take note.
