In 1937 Shanghai, sisters Pearl and May are beautiful, modern and carefree --- until the day their father tells them that he has gambled away their wealth and is selling the girls as wives to men from America.
More about Peony in Love:
As Peony, the 15-year-old daughter of the wealthy Chen family, approaches an arranged marriage, she commits an unthinkable breach of etiquette when she accidentally comes upon a man who has entered the family garden with the saga playing out similar to a beloved Chinese opera.
More about Snow Flower and the Secret Fan:
Two women --- Lily and Snow Flower --- form an unbreakable bond despite China’s rigid social caste and class rules that grows stronger as the women grow older, dealing with emotions such as love, pride and humility.
