Book Suggestion: The Palest Ink

The Palest Ink  By Kay Bratt

Having lived in Asia for five years (and counting) I read a lot of books set in the region.  The Palest Ink tells a colorful story of realistic people during the Cultural Revolution.  The book is a prequel to a series of books, but I only discovered that fact after I’d started reading it.  I don’t often read book series, but after reading about Benfu and his friends, I will likely read the books in the series.  I’d like to read what happens to the crew as they move through Chinese history.

The setting lends itself to to vivid imagery and haunted my dreams at night.  The cultural revolution was a horrific time in China for nearly everyone.  The Palest Ink tells a believable story set during this time.  I highly recommend it.
