I love this book, it was wonderful. I'm going to give it a great big 5.
The story is divided into two parts with the daughter's story bracketing the mother's.
In the beginning Ruth is struggling with the relationships in her life. She is feeling lost in her relationship with Art and doesn't understand what is happening with her mother, LuLing. When she finally decides to have her mother's writing translated to English she learns about her mother, many things she didn't know. Not reading this mirrors that same action by her mother concerning Precious Auntie's writing. The middle of the book tells LuLing's story. The end of this book returns to Ruth, who now has a greater understanding of her mother. Please read this!
