In other “things my mom apparently really liked” news, it seems my mom had quite the affinity for author Lisa See. Two of See’s books grace my mom’s list: Shanghai Girls and Peony in Love.
But long before this project began, my mom recommended to me Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. I read it so many years ago that I only barely remember it (I have a weird book-specific memory loss), but I have a vague recollection of liking it. I believe I enjoyed it even more than Shanghai Girls. Jury’s still out on Peony in Love since I haven’t made it there yet.
This is all a roundabout way to tell you that Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is going to be a movie. It comes out on July 15 and you can watch the official trailer above.
I have a feeling my mom would be putting this one on her Netflix list right behind Water for Elephants. And it would only be on Netflix because she preferred watching her movies on our family room TV instead of the big screen. Though our family room TV is a rather big screen.
