Asian American women have played significant roles in Asian American history, yet their voices are not often heard. A firsthand look at Asian women of the Midwest, Voices of the Heart is a comprehensive and comparative oral history that includes Chinese, Japanese, Filipina, Korean, and Asian Indian women as well as the newer Asian groups of Vietnamese, Laotians, Hmong, Thais, and Pakistanis. Huping Ling gathers these women's heartfelt stories about their journeys to America, their aspirations, their strides in education and employment, their cultural heritage, and their family dynamics. The women featured tell how their experiences align with their expectations of life in America, and the challenges of adjusting to a new culture while preserving their own. These colorful personal stories allow for a unique glimpse into the worlds of these often overlooked women.

From the Inside Flap:

Huping Ling showcases the heretofore unknown life stories of Chinese, Japanese, Filipinas Korean, South Asian, and Vietnamese immigrant and second generation women living in the American heartland. Told in their own words, Voices of the Heart uncovers the dazzling diversity of Asian American women's experiences as immigrants, workers, students, wives, mothers, daughters, and adoptees.—Evelyn Glenn Unlike most books about Asian American women that focus on those who are from the coasts, Huping Ling gives voice to Asian American women in the Midwest, treating those of East Asian, Southeast Asian, and South Asian descent, as well as international students and women of mixed ethnicity. Although different in background, generation, religion, and occupation, these women share fascinating accounts of their responses to issues such as dating, romance, marriage, family, work, cross-cultural interaction, and ethnic identity. This is a worthy addition to the growing literature about Asian American women.—Franklin Ng
