About this title

Synopsis:

"Remarkable...mesmerizing...compelling.... An entire world unfolds in Tolstoyan tide of event and detail....Give yourself over to the world Ms. Tan creates for you." —The New York Times Book Review

Winnie and Helen have kept each other's worst secrets for more than fifty years. Now, because she believes she is dying, Helen wants to expose everything. And Winnie angrily determines that she must be the one to tell her daughter, Pearl, about the past—including the terible truth even Helen does not know. And so begins Winnie's story of her life on a small island outside Shanghai in the 1920s, and other places in China during World War II, and traces the happy and desperate events tha led to Winnie's coming to America in 1949.

From the Publisher:

A wonderful story , full of the richness of Chinese cutlure and language. Amy Tan really took me into her life, past and present. She has a great way of conveying the language and the images that only one from her world and experiences would know. I felt totally connected to Winnie Louie!

-Ceneta Lee Williams, Ballantine National Account Manager
