A jealous and evil queen casts a dreadful spell over her 12 stepchildren - she exiles her beautiful stepdaughter, Elise, and turns her 11 stepsons into wild swans. Princess Elise sets out to find her brothers and release them from the spell, but finds that she must perform a nearly impossible task to carry out the rescue - create coats of mail out of sharp nettles for each of her brothers, and not speak a word the entire time. Even the love of a king - and the treachery of his adviser - must not deter her from her task. Sigourney Weaver narrates this beautiful version of one of Hans Christian Andersen's most compelling tales. Download and start listening now!

    " A truly moving and stunning biographical work, Chang tells the three interconnected stories of her grandmother, mother and herself, together all of whom experienced the most tumultuous century in Chinese history. Her gift of writing not only brings the shocking events to life, but the reader feels for each character and is moved by their stories and hardships. This book is obviously deeply personal to Chang, and it reads so: like reading a collection of diaries. An important book to read to understand the personal impacts the last century has had on the Chinese. "

    " By far THE BEST BOOK i have ever read in my entire life. It is told in such detail, and it leaves you addicted to it. I recommend this to anyone who is interested in the chinese communism/ mao ze dong era. "

    " I found it too heavily laden with history to make the story an enjoyable one (I prefer more of the story line - Snow Flower & the Secret Fan, Good Earth, Joy Luck Club - to this one). I couldn't even make myself finish the end of it, unfortunately! "
