Read from February 23 to 28, 2010

The first chapter creates a mesmerizing image of lost security, beauty, and innocence, a powerful theme of the memoir as a whole. This is a sad and beautiful account of thwarted dreams, sisterly bonds, and cultural misunderstanding. Among many other things, Rachlin is wonderful on the way we gain new perspectives on our families. I was sad to put the book down.
