This was the second Amy Tan novel I purchased after "The Joy Luck Club." I have read it so many times since then. It is similar to the Joy Luck Club in its sheer beauty yet so different in feeling and structure. Amy Tan is amazing at revealing complicated relationships between women. This novel focuses on the relationship between sisters, more specifically adopted sisters. It does still hold on to the weaving of individual stories, however they are longer and more in depth. This novel is startlingly beautiful and actually rather sad. You will love and hate characters, cry and laugh and want to read it again to better understand every word on every page.
