Obsah knihy: The Fox Wife

'Vivid, enigmatic, enchanting' M. L. Rio, author of If We Were Villains'Filled with wonder, mystery and folklore' Sue Lynn Tan, author of Daughter of the Moon GoddessSome people think foxes go around collecting qi, or life force, but nothing could be further than the truth. We are living creatures, just like you, only usually better looking . . .Manchuria, 1908: A young woman is found frozen in the snow. Her death is clouded by rumours of foxes, believed to lure people into peril by transforming into beautiful women and men. Bao, a detective with a reputation for sniffing out the truth, is hired to uncover the dead woman's identity. Since childhood, Bao has been intrigued by the fox gods, yet they've remained tantalizingly out of reach. Until, perhaps, now.Snow is a creature of many secrets, but most of all, she's a mother seeking vengeance. Hunting a murderer, the trail will take her from northern China to Japan, with Bao following doggedly behind. And as their paths draw ever closer together, both Snow and Bao will encounter old friends and new foes, even as more deaths occur. Epic in scope and full of singular, unforgettable characters, The Fox Wife is a stunning novel about old loves and second chances, the depth of maternal bonds, and ancient folktales that may very well be true.PRAISE FOR YANGSZE CHOO'You won't be able to put this one down' Reese Witherspoon'Captivating from the very beginning' 5* Reader Review'An exuberant medley of magic, romance and weirdness' The Times'Balancing good writing and strong attention to historical detail, the author has created something that is clever and unique' The Lady'A magically woven tapestry of history, lore, superstition, love, and destiny' 5* Reader Review'An irresistible page turner' Saga Magazine''Enthralling and exhilarating' 5* Reader Review'The tale's various twists and beautifully observed relationships are a pleasure to read' The Scotsman'Simply beautiful' 5* Reader Review'[A] highly imaginative and a spellbinding read' Woman's Weekly'A superb, multi-layered, intricate read' 5* Reader Review
