Isn't the cover exquisite? It is a beautifully written story set in Ancient China (one of my favourite settings) and is about a young girl who looks after a dragon. Gorgeous book for readers aged 11 and up.
My Mum got this book from a group of friends for her birthday. It has many uplifting stories, and I especially like the spiritual ones, and the ones about teaching.
Another great book from Monica McInerney! It's a bit Mills and Boonish, but had some family dramas that were interesting to follow.
