This book effected me so deeply with its complex, engaging, and devastating portrayal of an immigrant family that spans over several generations. Nearly every person who calls themself an American will find interest in this amazing book, because all our ancestors came from somewhere else - this book will give you a glimpse into the hard work, heart ache, and life that your forefathers endured.
Without a doubt one of the top 5 best books i have ever read.
I have always envied readers who pick up a book that I have read and loved. I envy you because you get to read this book for the first time.
