“A rich and nuanced portrait of eighteenth-century China...a magical book.”
Delia Sherman

“Gently intriguing, brilliantly detailed...Lotus’s singular story of enlightenment, involving a statue of the goddess Tara and the secret of a mandala, is the radiant center of these diversions.”
Publishers Weekly

“A luminous, self-contained, fluid world in which history, legend, and religious quest create a portrait of an age—the glittering high noon of the Manchu Empire...An exemplary novelist again makes history a playful parade of personalities, period details, and ordinary people conscripted by the times.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Both educational and thoroughly enjoyable.”
Nancy Pearl, Booklist
