I love this book. It's a story of two girls who grow up in a little village and have to get there feet binded at the age of 7. I'm going to find some pictures of what the foot binding looks like...I'll be write back to finish up the summary. k-I didn't post a pix of real feet because its very disturbing but search for it yourself to see but here is a drawing... This particular village believed that the smaller the feet are the higher class of man they will marry.
