    1. Shocked by a combination of how horribly bad the first book was with how lauded this series has been, I did some research to see, "Who publishes something so odious"? I learned a bit about Publishing imprints, one of which is Lake Union Publishing which has released this series. Because of it's popularity with families who have adopted from China, I will persevere through book 2, but I don't think I will enjoy it. Consider this review a Public Service Announcementat shall be completed when I am [...]


    2. I have one complaint right off the batis is part of a trilogy. Trilogy means there is only THREE books. I want a book for every single daughter!!That being said, as you can see, book two of the Scavenger's Daughters did not disappoint me. I will admit to having a harder time with Dahlia's story because I can't stand women who allow themselves to be victimized by menbut, and it's a big but, the ending revealed some things about her life that made me understand her a whole lot better and she displ [...]


    3. I really enjoyed this book, but the unnecessary drama at the end about 80% of the way in was just too much. I skimmed to get the the end of that story arc. I really did enjoy seeing the continuation of the Zheng family from the first book and look forward to reading more about them, though the teaser for the next book in the back of this book seemed a bit DRAMATIC. I will keep on reading, but really hope it doesn't fall into the trap of "drama is what the books are about". I really don't care if [...]


    4. Bratt is a good storyteller and, like the first book, I enjoyed this one, too. But you have to be willing to suspend belief. There were some pretty ridiculous plot developments.


    5. The beautiful first book of this series, The Scavenger's Daughters, has continued in beauty, finesse, and wonder into the second book of this series. A bridge book (the middle book of a series of three) is often difficult and many times lacking in substance or plot or satisfaction in movement towards any resolutions--not so with Tangled Vines. Where the first book was so sweet and wonderful, this book is much more poignant and complexgo, Tangled Vines. I really like that Kay Bratt uses Linnea to [...]


    6. TANGLED VINES provides an interesting perspective into modern Chinese society, an evolving structure that is still dealing with the aftermath of Mao’s one child policy and the losses caused by the Red Guards during the Cultural Revolution.Linnae is a young clothing designer who is just beginning to make her way in the world. As this story begins, she is about to open her own store, an accomplishment she is very proud of. The makeup of Linnae’s family is a very unusual one in China. She was r [...]


    7. I enjoyed this book even more than I did the first one, "The Scavenger's Daughters". Although written in a simplistic style the sentiment of the story is beautiful and intriguing enough to keep you turning the pages. This novel concentrated less on Benfu and Calli's adopted daughters and more upon their long lost biological daughter, Dahlia, and the hardships that she faced. Her story is a haunting one and reminiscent of the plight of many women who are victims of domestic violence. She is a str [...]


    8. GreatWonderful heart touching story. Enjoyed it from beginning to end. Will definitely keep your attention.looking forward to reading the 3rd book in this series.


    9. A tale of family, love, horrific wrongs, redemption, acceptance, and forgiveness. Also, a tale of pain, abandonment, abuse, strength, and courage. Linnea's store is going strong, and she wants to find her adoptive parents' daughter who was stolen from them as an infant by her paternal grandmother. The grandmother wanted them to have a son to carry on the family name, not a daughter, so she kidnapped her. Benfu and Calli suspected her and shut the grandparents out of their lives and took in lots [...]


    10. Ms. Bratt; she did it again.As I was growing up; I recall someone tell me about "good better and best." The first book in this series was Good. "Tangled Vines" was better. I enjoyed the love story of the older grandparents. I want Linn and Jake to be the replacement for the grandparents. But I will feel sadness with the end of the grandfather. He should be in every book of the series but that isn't possible, with his age and health, I don't feel he will last another book. Woo hoo he got to live [...]


    11. This book is not quite historical, but does include some events that were common in China. I loved this book. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but I loved this one even more. The story is sad and heavy at times, but the beauty of FAMILY spreads throughout the story and permeates every story thread in beautiful and brilliant waves. The characters are lovable for the most part although Eric invokes such a feeling of hatred and anxiety. This story is brilliantly told and the images ar [...]


    12. I really liked the first book in this series, this one less so but it was ok. The story is still 'nice' and so are the people. This time I felt the author was struggling to make the connections happen between people so she was forcing it. If I had to read one more time 'for Jojo' I would have screamed. We, the reader, are so aware that this was Li Jin's motivation for everything she did. I didn't need to be beaten around the head with it. Still I have come to care for the characters of Callie, B [...]


    13. Delightful storyThis tale of the lives of some of China's lost girls is enchanting. I've been interested in literature set in China since I read Pearl Buck's "The Good Earth", which was about 50 years ago. I'm also a huge Amy Tan fan. This series will go onto my bookshelf next to those old friends. It is very well written, and brings the post-Mao, modern China up close and personal. Also, quite a good mystery as well! I recommend this book.


    14. Wow, what an eye openerThis book is an eye opener into the Chinese cultureA couple of the characters in this book need there heads knocked together I really enjoyed the book and found it fascinating to learn about the Chinese culture I will add the next book in the series to my reading list


    15. Reader CommentsAfter reading Tangled Vines I am encouraged to be a loving and protective parent to my own kids when I have them someday. Tangled Vines helped me to see that I can rise above my abused childhood and have a family of my own someday. Please recommend this novel to anyone you know who is an orphan and wants a family of his or her own someday.


    16. Excellent book. The author keeps me interested through this 3rd book of the series. I enjoyed the continuing story of this family. It helps me understand the unrest that occurred and still occurs in China. Can't wait to read the next book.


    17. Intriquing tale of family love and strivesWonderful story. I like learning a little China history. Characters are very likable but uniquely thei own person.Can't wait to start Book 3.


    18. Yet another great installment of Benfu and his girls. These are such great, easy and enjoyable reads. Benfu, Callie, Lin, and Jett find themselves looking for Dahlia, Benfu and Callie's long stolen daughter. While Li Jin and her son JoJo struggle to get through everyday life.


    19. Enjoyable StoryI found the first half of the book slow and repetitious for someone who had already read Book 1. That's why I only gave it 4 stars. The second half was very enjoyable ! I can't wait to read Book 3.


    20. The book was fine. I didn't care for the audio version. Female reader's performances of male voices and older people was annoying to me.


    21. Another fabulous book by Kay Bratt! I've already downloaded the third book in this intriguing series. So glad I discovered Kay Bratt!


    22. Nice story lineI enjoyed this one, as I did the first and look forward to reading the next. I San devoted to family as are the characters of this book.





    23. Wonderful heartwarming book! Though it deals with some serious themes, it manages to end so warmly that I couldn’t help but smile to myself. Definitely going to finish the whole series!


    24. LOVED this story! I did read the first book of this series, The Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters, which I liked, but I enjoyed Tangled Vines even more! Kay Bratt is an excellent writer. Her knowledge of Chinese history, culture, customs, and even landscape is evident in her works. The characters in her books are artfully developed, and this reader's life has been enriched by knowing them.The first book of the series, The Scavenger's Daughters, introduces Benfu, the "Scavenger", who is a tortur [...]

    27. Book TwoI think this is a wonderful series of books, though I've only read the first two the next one comes out in April and inspire ordered it for my Kindle.I love stories of China, in fact I've always kept my copies of Amy Tan, Lisa See etc. but I found this through kindle so they'll be in my 'cloud'.The story follows Benful, a scavenger by trade and his wife Calli and their extended family of lost or rather abandoned girls brought home to be raised as their own. Girls have never been the firs [...]
