Absolutely loved this book. Not my usual but couldn't put it down. Highly recommend.  What an amazing and captivating story. I love the kind of books that transport you to another place and make you part of it. This is one of these reads.

Tran, a notorious Vietnamese insurgent, seems to offer the perfect escape from her troubles, while Mark, a charming American trader, is the man she’s always dreamed of. But who can she trust in this world where no one is what they seem?

The Silk Merchant’s Daughter is a captivating tale of dark secrets, sisterly rivalry and love against the odds, enchantingly set in colonial era Vietnam.
