By far the Violet Eden series is the best thing that's happened for me. I'm so glad that Jessica Shirvington chose to write this fascinating story. I am on to the third time of re-reading this series and I still get goose-bumps! This book is about a girl, Violet Eden. When she's 17 she is given the choice to embrace. I'll let you read on from that! I really recommend this book to anyone of any age! Trust me, you won't regret it!

The Trivia Man is a different format from the first three books by O’Brien “Mr Chen’s Emporium”, “The Jade Widow” and “A Place of Her Own”. It starts a little slow but it is worthwhile persevering until the storyline picks up and it gets more interesting. The subject matter is dealt with in a sensitive manner but without judgement. A good story and just a little different from the usual run of the mill stuff on offer these days.

This is the last in the series “Mr Chen’s Emporium”, “The Jade Widow” and “A Place of Her Own”. This book follows the pattern of the first book in switching between the present and the past. It is better, in my opinion, to read the books in order as it makes more sense and the details and sub plot can better be appreciated. An excellent series and not to be missed!

This is the second in the series “Mr Chen’s Emporium”, “The Jade Widow” and “A Place of Her Own”. In this book we follow the fortunes of Amy Chen. She would have been most unusual in her day as women were treated as second class citizens and very few achieved any position of power and influence. A very good read.

This is the first in the series “Mr Chen’s Emporium”, “The Jade Widow” and “A Place of Her Own”. It is written in parallel, then and now. The story beginning in 1872 is easy to follow even though the story keeps switching to the present. Not an easy technique to attempt, but this author has got it right. I love having a glimpse into the past and how it impacts the present. Definitely recommended.

Quite a good read if you want something light and entertaining. I liked it enough to seek out her other titles.

This has no subtitles/closed captions, so, like most of this series, important dialogue is obscured by pretentious overly-loud music. If you have hearing difficulties, don't bother.
