Kurzbeschreibung

With the bad memories of the Cultural Revolution and a life of hard work behind them, Benfu and his treasured Calla Lily are content watching their daughters blossom—six young women who they adopted as their own. But when a clue to the whereabouts of the biological daughter they lost decades ago suddenly surfaces, they begin a frantic search to find their beloved Dahlia…

Li Jin has lived thirty years at the mercy of cruel foster parents and a bleak orphanage, often surviving on the streets. But now that she has a son, she must try to make a better life for them—even if it means withstanding the abuse of a seedy foreigner in exchange for a home. But when Erik’s treatment turns truly sadistic, she must find a way to escape once and for all…

A beautiful yet haunting story about the “lost girls” of China, Tangled Vines takes us on a journey of heartbreak and then hope as we witness a woman’s quest to change her fate and a family’s last chance to untangle the lies of the past.

Kay Bratt bringt es fertig in jedem ihrer China-Bücher dem Leser ihren grossen Respekt und ihre tiefe Liebe zu diesem Volk zu vermitteln. "Tangled Vines" ist die Fortsetzung von "The Scavenger's Daughters".
Beide Bücher sind absolut zu empfehlen, auch wenn meines Erachtens nach jedesmal das "Happy End" vielleicht etwas zu rosig dargestellt wird.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wish There Was a Story For Every Daughter 10. Dezember 2013
Von Tara - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have one complaint right off the bat...this is part of a trilogy. Trilogy means there is only THREE books. I want a book for every single daughter!!

That being said, as you can see, book two of the Scavenger's Daughters did not disappoint me. I will admit to having a harder time with Dahlia's story because I can't stand women who allow themselves to be victimized by men...but, and it's a big but, the ending revealed some things about her life that made me understand her a whole lot better and she displayed amazing strength when I believe I would have crumbled. She is truly a phoenix rising from the ashes, this woman. She surprised me. I didn't like her at first, at all, but by the end of the book, I "got it".

Ms. Bratt once again lives up to her "brand" with this title. Capturing the heart of humanity. So many people in this book are horrid and cruel but each one is counteracted with a person who cares, who loves, who wishes to help, and we need to be reminded of that, especially nowadays. We need to remember for every bad, there's a good. This book should serve as a reminder to anyone who reads it that there is both good and bad in the world and also that there is always HOPE. I think the strongest theme this time was hope. Just when you think you've hit rock bottom...

The story in a nutshell: A continuation from book one, Linnae is running her own successful business now, the family is very proud, everything is fabulous, but her adopted parents still have a whole in their lives from the daughter they lost thirty years before. This is HER story, and it's one of heartache. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Linnae is determined to find Dahlia and reunite her with her biological parents. The story goes back and forth between Linnae and the family and Dahlia's tremulous situation. There's suspense, tears, and many a moral. Linnae realizes that "money, success, looks--all along she'd been thinking she needed all of it to be taken seriously, but now she was just wondering if maybe those were just icing on the cake."

And as I said above, from bad, from horror, often something good can be born. Perhaps we just have to open ourselves up to it? Not dwell on the negative. Take Dahlia for example. She could have chosen to hate the child born to her, due to the circumstances of its conception, but instead, she ended up with the best thing in her life.

Anyway, this story just gave me many deep thoughts such as that. I cannot wait to find out what happens to the other daughters. I wish they all had a book. Ms. Bratt, any way I can convince you to like, write nine stories? LOL

And I'd especially enjoyed the glimpses into Chinese life, the fortune teller, the food, some of the laws. I found this educational as well.

I received this from the author in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautifully descriptive settings, and character development 10. Dezember 2013
Von David Bromden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Follow Linnea as she puts her heart and soul into finding Dahlia, the biological daughter of her beloved Ye Ye and Nai Nai who was abducted at birth 30 years ago. Travel with her as she puts the pieces of the puzzle together before it is too late. We are introduced to Dahlia and are immersed into her daily struggles and successes. I felt her pain, and cried. And cheered her on as she found her strength and courage.

This book flows well from the first in the series, The Scavenger’s Daughters. It was fun to remember each character again. There is enough information on each character for this book to stand alone if you have not read the first one, but the first was great, so I recommend reading it also.

The book was masterfully written and each page brings you deeper and deeper into the Chinese culture. Old mixed with new. Get lost into the beautifully descriptive settings and character development. Each chapter leaves you wanting to read more. Author Kay Bratt has done her homework developing the story line with interesting Chinese customs and traditions, and brings each character to life with descriptive detail and emotion.

I highly recommend this book for adults. It has some adult content, and sensitive issues.
I look forward to reading Bitter Winds, book 3 in Tales of the Scavenger’s Daughters this spring.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen So exciting, so worth the wait!! 10. Dezember 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
LOVED this story! I did read the first book of this series, The Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters, which I liked, but I enjoyed Tangled Vines even more! Kay Bratt is an excellent writer. Her knowledge of Chinese history, culture, customs, and even landscape is evident in her works. The characters in her books are artfully developed, and this reader's life has been enriched by knowing them.

The first book of the series, The Scavenger's Daughters, introduces Benfu, the "Scavenger", who is a tortured prisoner during the Revolution, because of his family's unwillingness to denounce their position as educators. Through an unexplained act of human kindness, another young man is able to free the prisoner, who escapes to a neighboring town, where he is aided in his hiding by a young woman, Calla Lily.

The story then moves forward several decades and we join Benfu and Calli, and their delightful and close knit family of many daughters of all ages. The daughters were all found, originally discarded by their birth families, possibly due to China's one child policy and its age old preference for a son, possibly due to special physical needs of the children, or for reasons that we may never know. The writer expertly draws the reader into caring immensely about each individual character, from the proud and loving patriarch, to each different child in the family. We also learn of the pain and heartache that Benfu and Calli have endured every day of their lives since their first daughter, their only birth child, was stolen away from them as an infant. They think of her every day, not knowing if she lived or died.

In Tangled Vines, the story goes more in depth with one of the older daughters, Linnea, and her entrepreneurial success. Because of her love for her parents, and a chance meeting of an interesting gentleman from her grandparents generation, Linnea decides to pursue clues that may lead to learning about the outcome of the sister she never met, Benfu's and Calli's daughter that was kidnapped thirty years earlier.

The reason that I gave Tangled Vines 5 stars while giving The Scavenger's Daughter 4 stars, is that I appreciated the more complex and exciting storyline in Tangled Vines. In this second book of the series, there is incredible love...both the familial love between the siblings and their parents, as well as new passionate love between Linnea and Jet, whose relationship began in the first installment. There is also mystery and intrigue, as well as edge of your seat excitement, keeping me reading late into the night on several occasions. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and absolutely can't wait to read Bitter Winds, the next book in the series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen wonderful book 6. März 2014
Von John Henry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great following to book one of the Scavengers Daughter. It does not want to let you put it down. A super book and if you are interested on how the Chinese once treated their girl babies then this is the series to read. It will open your eyes and mind as to the lack of freedom and the mistreatment to women across this so called modern world. This does not only happen in China but in many other countries across the Far East. We still exploit women here in the United States of America.

3.0 von 5 Sternen too many details 29. April 2014
Von Sabina Damone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book really seemed to drag on. Mostly because the author spent too much time on the horrible details of the poor daughters life. This book was much more violent than the fist. Yes I know that domestic abuse is a horrible situation, but the author could have left a few details out. I would have preferred the author spent a little less time describing the abuse and more time on the story. The first book I loved the story of the unselfishness of the parents. Yes their life was absolutely miserable, however they still did their best to give back to society. I walked away from that book wanting to be more like that. With this book I would have enjoyed more time spent on the character development.
