Great 5th book out of my marathon book challenge. I took a break from John Adams and dove into this book the week of Christmas/New Year. It was a good break and I really enjoyed this story. Amy Tan writes so well. She has the ability to write about 3-4 different stories and ties them all nicely together. One story of Chinese mother and her American daughter and the struggle/ups and downs they endure. Second story is about the Chinese mother's struggle with her memory loss/dementia/Alzheimer's. Third story is about Chinese mother reliving her childhood and discovering her own mother's story. Fourth is the American daughter's story of finding herself, her mother and her love.
I recommend this book to anyone. Amy Tan knows how to weave an entertaining tale. Now back to John Adams.
