Cup of Light by Nicole Mones
Book DescriptionLia Frank - an appraiser of fine Chinese porcelain - is sent from New York to Beijing to catalogue and appraise a rare collection of 20 pieces. At the private house she has been given to work in, however, she finds 800 pieces - many originating from the imperial porcelain collection. Are all these beautiful objects authentic? Or are some brilliant fakes? As Lia examines her treasure, she finds herself drawn into the underworld of Chinese art - professional smugglers who take porcelain between mainland China and Hong Kong, connoisseurs looking for a special piece, and the Chinese police, who seek to impose the highest penalty on smugglers. And Lia begins a love affair that could alter the course of her life forever. In this world, beauty always has a price and nothing can be judged too finely.
