I can't forget her. (from the first line)
Annotation:
Lotus is servant to the Empress Dowager during the Manchurian period in China. Readers travel with her along a spiritual path through the Forbidden City, through erotic fantasy to the miracle of the mandala. In this fabulist tale, we encounter figures from all eras of history, Eastern challenges to Western ideas, details of daily life of the time, and a Buddhist exploration of the sensual and sexual world.

Her language is sparkling and limpid--the perfect medium for this adventurous tale." - Jay Parini
