It is remarkable to read such an honest and well written book. It is one thing to have such a story to tell, it’s yet another to be able to write it in a way that guides the reader invisibly and enfolds them in the story you are writing. Shirley Mihoko Hairston does just this. As I reached the last pages of The Silk Box my heart ached. I just did not want it to end. I wanted to know everything about Mi-Chan and Sonny’s lives after the book had closed, and I hope that the author will write a follow up book so I can immerse myself again in the lives of two amazing people and their family.
I can honestly say that this is one of the best books I have ever read. It both touched and inspired me, and I would recommend it to anyone.
