Book groups were a huge part of what made Lisa See's Snow Flower and the Secret Fan a bestseller and many of us have been eagerly awaiting her follow up, which just went on sale yesterday. Peony in Love tells the story of young Peony, a woman betrothed to a man she's never met who, while attending the controversial opera the Peony Pavilion, falls in love with a mysterious stranger. It is only when she is dying that she learns that the object of her affection is her intended husband. After she dies, she haunts him from the afterlife. The novel is set in the 17th century, and like with Snow Flower, See takes us into a world that most of us know nothing about, and tells a beautiful story at the same time.
