2004 Harper Collins Publishers Hardcover Great Britain Edition of The Secrets of Jin-Shei by Alma Alexander 488 pages A rich saga set in medieval China; it is the story of a group of women, the Jin-Shei sisterhood, who form a uniquely powerful circle that transcends class and social custom. They are bound together by a declaration of loyalty that transcends all other vows, even those with the gods, by their own secret language, passed from mother to daughter, by the knowledge that some of them will have to pay the ultimate sacrifice to enable others to fulfil their destiny. The sisterhood we meet run from the Emperor's sister to the street-beggar, from the trainee warrior in the Emperor's Guard to the apprentice healer, from the artist to the traveller-girl, herself an illegitimate daughter of an emperor and seen as a threat to the throne. Then as one of them becomes Dragon Empress. Her determination to hold power drags the sisterhood into a dangerous world of court intrigue, plot and counterplot. This brings them into a conflict from which they can only be rescued by the one who remains true to the vows she make at the very beginning to the dying Empress. An amazing and unusual book. Full of drama, adventure and conflict, Jin-Shei is a novel about kinship and a society of women all set in the wonderful swirling background of medieval China.

Frequently Asked Questions

When I order a magazine are you sending me just the cover?

While we are aware that some sellers sell only the covers (for framing), we sell you the entire magazine.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we do. It depends the country's restrictions and the shipping availability to that county. Due to the current pandemic we are limiting our international shipping.

Where did you get your name?

On some mornings, if you get up early enough, from an open field you can see the fog listing up towards the local mountains. Just as the sun starts to creep in, the fog gives off this bluish purplish haze.

Are you open 24/7?

We are e-commerce only so we are open 24 hours 7 days a week. However, we only staff humans and they work a normal business day.

How do you select your month charity?

We try to select a local nonprofit that we feels helps others and gives back to our community. Or ones that do not get the donations that other big nonprofits receive.

Gift wrapping and packaging

While we do not gift-wrap an item, if you advise us it is a gift, we package the item as we normally do and then place it in a decorative polymailer. We also add your note to an all-occasion card and insert it. We do this free-of-charge.

Are you an American Company?

We are an American women-owned company located in the lovely Hudson Valley area of New York State. All shipments are from New York State.

Do you offer a discount?

We do offer a 10% discount. If your purchase does not include one of our discount codes, please contact us prior to paying and we will send you the code. The code cannot be used after you paid. Also every month we put a different book genre on sale.

Do you offer a guaranteed delivery date?

No, we do not. We can give you an estimated date. We ship via the US Postal System. Unfortunately, we do not have any control over your order once it leaves out hands. All orders include tracking. If your order takes longer than normal for delivery, we will investigate it.

I purchased "X" magazine subscription. How come I didn't get it?

Because you didn't order it from us. You need to contact the publishing company. If you need help locating them, we will try to help. We only sell single issue magazines.
