Free read Sweet Mandarin Free read ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ï Helen Tse Helen Tse ï 6 Read & Download Spanning almost a hundred years this rich and evocative true story recounts the lives of three generations of remarkable Chinese women Their extraordinary journey takes us from the brutal poverty of village life in mainland China to newly prosperous 1930s Hong Kong and finally to the UK Their lives were as dramatic as the times they lived throughA love of food and a talent for cooking. A great read for me and the book flows well making it easily read in a couple of sittings What I found different about this book was that as well as it being the true story of Lily and working hard to get herself out of the poverty in China that she was born into was that this story showed just how easily that she managed to lose it all again yet she managed to still have that focus and worked so hard to get it back It also describes how Lily s family were the first chinese faces to be seen in the streets of Middleton Manchester in 1959 and how they were welcomed into the community and not so welcomed by others yet she won most people over with her famous Lily s Chicken CurryThere are also humourous points throughout such as when her Manchester restaurant was visited by The Hollies and Cliff Richard Little did they realise that Lily far from being cool simply had no idea who they wereWell worth a read in my opinion
