Journal Entry 1 by loveamystery from Vancouver, British Columbia Canada on Sunday, March 23, 2008
From the back cover: "From Wayson Choy, beloved author of The Jade Peony, comes a heart-breakingly beautiful new work. All That Matters continues the story of the Chen family, this time seen through the eyes of First Son, Kiam-Kim. Having fled the harshness of their Toishan village, the Chens arrive in Gold Mountain,, dreams fading to reality as they struggle to keep alive the traditions of an older world and adjust to a country on the brink of the Second World War. Choy accomplishes the extaordinary: blending a haunting evocation of tenacious, ancient traditions with a precise, funny, and very modern coming-of-age story."

A wonderful story.

I did enjoy this as much as the Jade Peony. I love historical fiction set here in Vancouver. It makes me look at my city in a different way.
