The Secret Language of Women

Lisa See’s latest novel Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a departure from her Edgar Award mystery series featuring an American FBI agent and a female Chinese investigator: Flower net, (a New York Times Notable Book of 1997); The Interior,(1999); and Dragon Bones, (2003).

In Snow Flower, See delved into the inner lives of two women in 19th century China who shared a secret written language called nu shu that existed for centuries in a remote part of Hunan province.
