Blossoming in America

The Cooked Seed is a new memoir by well-known author Anchee Min.  This interestingcooked story recounts Ms. Min’s experiences in Communist China and her immigration to the U.S. It is a gripping story filled with struggle, heartbreak, and loss, tempered with a good deal of hope, wisdom, and honesty.

I am always fascinated with stories written by former inhabitants of China as they open my eyes to the reality of living in a Communist country.  This book also provided an immigrant’s window into the lives of Americans.  This book reminded me to count my blessings.
