Journal Entry 1 by libragirl from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Monday, January 09, 2012
FridaY, aUGUST 15TH 1997. The night the girls arrived. Two tiny Korean babies are delivered to Baltimore to two families who have no more in common than this. First there are the Donaldsons, decent Brad and homespun, tenacious Bitsy (who believes fervently that life can always be improved), two full sets of grandparents and a host of big-boned, confident relatives, taking delivery with characteristic razzmatazz.

Then there are the Yazdans, pretty, nervous Ziba (her family "only one generation removed from the bazaar") and carefully assimilated Sami with his elegant, elusive, Iranian-born widowed mother Maryam, the grandmother to be, receiving their little bundle with wondering discretion.

Saw the release alert, and had just enough of my lunchbreak left to run over to Erskine and see if the book was still there. And it was! I don't normally much luck with hunting books, so it's exciting to actually catch one, especially one that looks like it might be an interesting read.

A lovely story about cultural difference, and fitting in.
