Thousand Pieces of Gold - Ruthanne Lum McCunn
This is a book I have had on the TBR shelves for a while and hadn't gotten around to reading because I was afraid it would be depressing, even though I was intrigued by the subject. I was wrong, the story of Lalu Nathoy/Polly Bemis was at times scary but it was also hopeful and I enjoyed this book, despite some serviceable but mildly clunky writing. It made me want to read more about Lalu/Polly.
