"I found it so compelling, I absolutely couldn't put it down... One of the most satisfying, enjoyable and interesting books I've read in a while.” — NANCY RICHLER, author of The Imposter Bride, Your Mouth Is Lovely and Throwaway Angels
"It is a triumph. There is so much magic here, such generous imagining. The prose sings while the story is told in surging crescendo that makes us race to know what happens." — BEVERLY SWERLING, author of City of Dreams, Shadowbrook, City of Glory, City of God, City of Promise and Bristol House
"Three Souls is a glorious, deeply readable novel — the kind you pick up and read voraciously, every chance you get. The kind you get lost in." — SHAENA LAMBERT, author of Radiance and The Falling Woman
"In this highly original, capriciously imagined tale, Song Leiyin journeys to the afterlife in the company of three guiding souls. As her life in tumultuous 1920s China is recounted, readers are treated to a deft examination of the woe and splendour of family and the human heart." - CATHY MARIE BUCHANAN, author of The Painted Girls and The Day the Falls Stood Still

Set during the Chinese Revolution in the thirties, Three Souls is extremely well written with an enchanting and engaging story, and solid, well developed characters. A very enjoyable book, and highly recommended to all readers.
Three Souls will make you think about our present ways vs. those old ways. The story is entertaining and well written.
