by Alexandra Curry, received a stellar Associated Press review with pick-up from over fifty outlets.

The novel is based on the remarkable story of legendary Chinese courtesan Sai Jinhua, and follows her as she is orphaned and sold into prostitution as a young girl. She later travels to Vienna, where she develops a romance with a Western nobleman which soon endangers her very life. Anton DiSclafani, the bestselling author of The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls calls it “masterfully told, exquisitely detailed…a tale I won’t soon forget” Earlier in the month, Curry launched the novel at the Decatur Book Festival, and was interviewed by local outlets like Creative Loafing Atlanta, Atlanta InTown Magazine, and Georgia Public Broadcasting’s Two Way Street.
Curry also wrote a piece for Biographile
and has received major blog attention.
