Ugh. I'm trying to read Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, but I had to put it down. I have to get through these first few chapters, but it is so difficult to read about foot binding. The description is so horrifying that I truly felt myself getting sick and wanting to throw up from reading. I want to cry.
