I learned a great deal about Chinese culture and history.
By the time we get to the heroine's mother's back story, I no longer cared what happened, I just wanted to finish the book so I could read something else.
The story was interesting, but not very believable and very few of the characters were likable ... Not one of Amy Tan's greats.
I always feel I have learned something after reading one of her novels. I never realized the differences in culture before reading ms. Tan's booksPublished 8 hours ago by Amazon Customer

Condition of book was excellent. Story was even better. Gives you a great perspective on life outside of the USA, especially during the early 20th century.Published 2 days ago by B. Battistoni
