In this second book of the Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters we go with Linnea as she looks for Dahlia. This puts a mystery in her path. She slowly puts the pieces together.
Dahlia, meanwhile, is facing her own successes and pain. My heart went with her through her journey.
Kay Bratt was able to make this seem like an effortless sequel to the previous book. She reacquainted us with each of the characters so the new reader would not be lost. In fact it might whet their appetite so much they will want to go back and start with book one. Each book brings the Chinese culture to our back door, from the descriptions of the surroundings to the changing of the times. Once again, I was not able to put this book down until I finished it.
There is some adult content in it, so I would only recommend it for adults. I was given this book by NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
