I've enjoyed books by Tsukiyama in the past and picked this one up to read before sending on in a RABCK.

From Booklist via amazon:
In a story where the omniscient narrator moves the point of view among the family participants, and where time may shift years between chapters or linger over moments slow and sweet as honey, we view the world of Emma Lew of Hong Kong and, later, San Francisco; her older sister Joan; and their family from 1940 to 1965. The changing mores of Hong Kong society are the backdrop for the tender relationships among Emma, who longs for a wider world than her mother's ladies' lunches; Joan, who finds her place in the movies that have fed her dreams since childhood; Auntie Go, who pulls deeply against tradition by running her own business; and silent servant Foon, whose cooking forges a near-mystical familial bond. Particularly fine at evoking how scent and aroma can jog the memory and clutch at the heart, the tale grows in richness as it proceeds, a paean to the sustaining pleasures of family. GraceAnne A.

Received for the North American You've Got Mail Sweepstakes - thank you! I'm sure I'll enjoy reading this. Thanks also for the lovely card, bookmark, and bookcrossing supplies (I hope your grad school application went okay!).

Sorry this one took me so long - it was an interesting read, especially the details about Macao (which I knew little about).

It's now slated for wild release soon.
