A very good book. Not to be missed.

Not a big fan of chick lit. All that angst! I don't usually think of Ann Hood as a "chick lit" writer, which is why The Red Thread was on my reading list. The positives of this book: The stories of the Chinese mothers (and in one case, a father) who must give up their daughters are realistic and heartbreaking. Sadly, these situations have been repeated hundreds of thousands of times across China. I also appreciated the path of healing and self-forgiveness that Maya had to walk. But I had a hard time connecting with and caring about most of the characters, and thought their problems probably wouldn't have seemed so overwhelming if they'd only decided to be a little less self-indulgent.
