If you need any extra inspiration, here's Book Passage president Elaine Petrocelli's glowing review:

Violet’s mother was from San Francisco, but she owned a first class courtesan house in early 20th century Shanghai. Violet, raised with many privileges by her demanding mother, listened at doors and peeked in windows. She wasn’t shocked by watching the courtesans beguile their suitors, but learning that her father was Chinese was traumatic. When the Ching Dynasty fell, Violet was separated from her mother and left alone in Shanghai where her only option was to become a virgin courtesan. Don’t miss this complex, sexy novel of love, adventure, greed, and mystery.
