I've loved Amy Tan's other works, and this came highly recommended. Not that my TBR pile needs any new additions...

This is the third of Tan's books I've read, and follows a similar pattern to the other two (Joy Luck Club, Kitchen God's Wife): rebellious American daughter of misunderstood Chinese mother, culture clashes combined with generational differences, mother's secret childhood in China eventually is revealed to daughter, understanding ensues. Luckily, Tan's lyrical prose helps the formula remain fresh. The ending was unfortunately not as tight as it could have been; things were too tidy to be realistic, as if Tan were rushed to get the story out the door. I kind of think that if it were only the mother's story it would have been good as it stands, without mentioning the daughter at all. But it was still a good read - up until the end.

Picked this up at La Madeleine, to take to the Bethesda Library.

Edited: Pretty sure crrcookie grabbed this from me for her Family Reunion release challenge. A good thing, too--I'd forgotten that the Bethesda Library isn't open Sundays in summer. Where it'll turn up next, nobody knows!
