Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Larsen's lively narrative of her life in America reads like the Cinderella romance that it ultimately is. When her existence in Thailand is abruptly shattered by the murder of her brother, Wanwadee decides to utilize the services of an Asian mail-order bride agency in the hopes of pursuing a college education in America. Fortunately, the man she marries is sympathetic, and her memoirs record her growing relationship with him and her attempts to come to terms with her adopted home. Although Wanwadee is appealing, her cultural generalizations often appear too pat. Also, although she protests that Asian American women are more than "kitchen appliances with sex organs," she fails to connect the Asian mail-order bride business with perpetuating this image. Recommended for growing Asian American collections or those wishing to learn more about our newest immigrants.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Raymond Hendrix on August 30, 2001
Format: Paperback
The book is perfect for anyone interested in both Thai culture and what seems to be an objective view of the American way of life. This is not a racy scandalous book if that is what you are looking for. Wanwadee is a conservative Thai who marries a rather typical American man. What an adventure to follow her thoughts as she is confronted with this strange country with its modern culture. I frankly could not put the book down.
The cover is a little misleading as is the title except that she really was a "mail order bride". If you are interested in Thai culture and a bit of romance then you will like the book. The side benefit is we American's get to blush a little when we see ourselves as others see us
