According to Confucius, “an educated woman is a worthless woman,” but Tan Yunxian—born into an elite family, yet haunted by death, separations, and loneliness—is being raised by her grandparents to be of use. Her grandmother is one of only a handful of female doctors in China, and she teaches Yunxian the pillars of Chinese medicine, the Four Examinations—looking, listening, touching, and asking—something a man can never do with a female patient.

From a young age, Yunxian learns about women’s illnesses, many of which relate to childbearing, alongside a young midwife-in-training, Meiling. The two girls find fast friendship, and a mutual purpose and vow to be forever friends, sharing in each other’s joys and struggles.

But when Yunxian is sent into an arranged marriage, her mother-in-law forbids her from seeing Meiling and from helping the women and girls in the household. Yunxian is to act like a proper wife—embroider bound-foot slippers, recite poetry, give birth to sons, and stay forever within the walls of the family compound, the Garden of Fragrant Delights.

Copies of the book will be available for pick-up at the circulation desk

Senior Advocate Services is here to help you and your loved ones navigate the art of aging gracefully and with dignity. Most senior adults in our country need assistance understanding their options as they face late-life transitions, but many are unsure of where to turn. Information is plentiful, but often confusing and not easily attainable. Some are fortunate to have family members assist, but often those family members live in a different state, or they have time constraints due to busy schedules.

In this presentation Senior Advocacy Services will talk with you about how to plan for your later years short-and long-term. They will provide you with information to guide your decision about whether to age in place or sell your home and choose a senior living community that is right for your lifestyle needs. Also being discussed will be how to navigate the complexities of our healthcare system and insurance coverages and how to partner with financial and legal advisors as well as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist®. They look forward to answering your questions and providing you with information based on our collective experience.
