Book Review: Bitter Winds

This is the third book in Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters and it is as intriguing as the first two.

This book follows the story of Lily. The content of the book were a little more difficult to handle because of the subject matters of metal illness, physical disability and homelessness in China. It is not unusual for a child that is not wanted, or those that go against the government to be committed.

As in the other books, the characters became a part of my heart. It begins with Benfu's and Callie's family trying to keep the shelter for the homeless and unwanted. Lily and Ivy are 16 and Lily is blind. She played her violin in public so she was taken by the officials. Her family could pay for her release but they do not have the money. When she is placed in a mental hospital her family have to deal with red tape to help their daughter.

Once again the subject matters may not be easy to read but they do need to be seen and understood.
Thank you Kay Bratt. You have such a gift.

I was given this book by NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
