From a master of the historical novel, Empress Orchid sweeps readers into the heart of the Forbidden City to tell the fascinating story of a young concubine who becomes China s last empress. Min introduces the beautiful Tzu Hsi, known as Orchid, and weaves an epic of a country girl who seized power through seduction, murder, and endless intrigue. When China is threatened by enemies, she alone seems capable of holding the country together. In this absorbing companion piece to her novel Becoming Madame Mao (New York Times), readers and reading groups will once again be transported by Min s lavish evocation of the Forbidden City in its last days of imperial glory and by her brilliant portrait of a flawed yet utterly compelling woman who survived, and ultimately dominated, a male world."

Reviews

"A fascinating novel, similar to Arthur Golden's "Memoirs of a Geisha . . . A revisionist portrait of a beautiful and strong-willed woman."
