The Emperor's BonesBeautiful headstrong and unconventional Catherine Cabot is twenty years old when she arrives in ChinaAgainst an uneasy political background a bittersweet triangular love affair develops between Catherine and Edmund and George Airton And all the while she is trying to uncover the truth of her past unaware of the danger this might pose to her It's taken me 9 months 10 days to finish reading this book and it's nothing compared to the historical background and description Mr Williams offers in this book When you have a story that's 736 pages long and is told over a decade set in a country on the verge of a revolution then reading it one sitting must count for something right I'm glad I took my time cast the book aside and then returned to it taking in as much as I could before doing something elseAbout the book Beautiful headstrong and unconventional Catherine Cabot is 20 years old when she arrives in China Against an uneasy political background a bittersweet triangular love affair develops between Catherine Edmund and George Airton and all the while she tries to uncover the truth behind her pastI loved the writing style the long paragraphs the description of the characters and essentially though set in a period of war opium trade and espionage this felt like The heroine of the tale is Catherine Cabot but she's got one friend Yu Fu Kuei too who I felt did help bring out Catherine's uick thinking and make her calculative in trying to survive the warOn love everyone desires Catherine; The Russian Lin George Edmund Airton William and the list is endless but the one who gets her and cares less about her is George Their marriage is nothing but a business deal for him and she's the trophy wife who jumps when he commands and that pissed me off Her love for Edmund was the kind where he gave and she took and I kept wondering how much of it he'd takethis is the part where I admit that I am a hopeless romanticWell this book was like the Moby Dick whaleto me because I kept meaning to finish reading it but somehow never did so and to admit that I've read almost a hundred books since I started reading this goes to show something about the pace and the historical details within it
