Book Review: Country of Daughters: Volume 2: Brides of Algae Village

Title: Country of Daughters: Volume 2: Brides of Algae Village

Author: Bijou Li





Country of Daughters Volume 2 can be read as a stand-alone, although it is a continuation of Volume 1. The book consists of three love stories written by Yily, based on the characters that she’s met in Algae Village. In The Popsicle Bride, West, an American anthropology student finds the inn keeper Namu a perfect subject for his research. In order to own an inn, Namu agrees to marry a wealthy investor, but her determination is challenged by West’s research project. In The Sanitary Truck Bride, Shasha, a girl who wishes to marry a city guy and settles in a city, unwillingly accepts a job assignment and finds herself in a sanitary truck in Algae Village, side by side with a gorgeous Mosuo man who does his job for the love of the environment. Bride of the Mosuo Chief is dedicated to Madam Liao. Yily imagines the life of the Madam before she becomes the Mosuo Empress. Magnolia is the daughter of an army captain who dreams to become a soldier when she grows up. She attempts to escape her engagement with the Mosuo chief and runs into a series of adventures.



My review

4/5 Stars

This book was different from the type that I usually read but I loved the idea of this story. Following the adventures of a young girl named Yily, the reader is introduced to customs and cultures of a variety of different people. To me, the author had a way of not only creating characters but explaining the world they live in with interesting details to keep the reader turning pages. With a handful of different love stories, this book is definitely recommended for all lovers of romance.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
