From NEWSWEEK:
Winnie and Helen have kept each other's worst secrets for more than fifty years. Now, because she believes she is dying, Helen wants to expose everything. And Winnie angrily determines that she must be the one to tell her daughter, Pearl, about the past--including the terible truth even Helen does not know. And so begins Winnie's story of her life on a small island outside Shanghai in the 1920s, and other places in China during World War II, and traces the happy and desperate events that led to Winnie's coming to America in 1949.

Again Amy Tan writes an emotionally resonant tale of the relationship between mothers and daughters. It also tells a tale of of the modern daughters relationship with her heritage and trying to figure out how it intersects with her modern lifestyle.

Amy Tan, yet again, has written a lovely tale. The story was magic, heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. A simple, beautiful story.
