Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, by Lisa See

Set in a remote part of China in the 19th century, this is a story of two life long friends, Lily and Snow Flower. The story potrays the role of women in rural China with historical accuracy. The description of the foot binding process is heartbreaking and gruesome. The story focuses on these two friends and their triumphs and tragedies. This is a lovely, heartwarming story of two memorable characters.
