Sansian Towers in Waian Penghu, reporting all is safe and well to the passing fishing boats
This novel is outstanding. It fully reflects the historical time, social movement of each stage of Taiwan from the end of the Ching Dynasty (1895) to the 1980fs. It presents the details of daily public life and the distress of the people in Penghu under the rule of a foreign nation---Japan. The local history of Penghu Islands is the epitome of the whole historical situation of Taiwan
- Dr.Ye, renowned Taiwanese historian and novelist.
It is very easy to learn about the history of Taiwanese people in Chinese textbooks, but you wonft learn Taiwanfs authentic history, including that of Taiwanfs Penghu Islands. Louisefs family history originates in Penghu, so she can write authentically about the history of Taiwan and Penghu. Penghu Moon in the Well is not only a successful novel, but it also reveals actual historical events.

Louisefs novel affirms that we are all connected, for better or for worse, forever and ever. We travel in a never-ending circle because we want to return home, to the source, to the light at the end of the tunnel.
- Barbara Ladouceur, Canadian Writer
I learned a great deal about Taiwan and Penghu, the people, culture and history. The characterizations and descriptions bring us right into the place. I can see why this book has sold very well there. It has made me very curious to visit Penghu and Taiwan.
