The Peony season is here. Hurrah! and they remind me of this quotation. I read this novel when on holiday in South Africa. I remember crying many times when reading it. I found it a difficult read, I think it was especially reading it in the country I was journeying in at the time and all my mixed emotions and thoughts of being there. Have you read it? What are your memories of the novel?
