In Women of the Silk Gail Tsukiyama takes her readers back to rural China in 1926, where a group of women forge a sisterhood amidst the reeling machines that reverberate and clamor in a vast silk factory from dawn to dusk. Leading the first strike the village has ever seen, the young women use the strength of their ambition, dreams, and friendship to achieve the freedom they could never have hoped for on their own. Tsukiyama's graceful prose weaves the details of "the silk work" and Chinese village life into a story of courage and strength.

Beautiful story of China and the silk factories, primarily set during the 1920s and 1930s. A story of friendship between women, the strength of such bonds, etc. Done with Tsukiyama's incredible mastery of language and subtlety.
