The author, Amy Tan wrote this book in first person narrative starting with Pearl and then Winnie(Pearl's daughter). In the beginning of the story, Pearl who was American born Chinese was foreign from the Chinese custom and married a white American, Phil. Late on with the story, helen who's a best friend of Winnie, informed Pearl to veils that she has a benign brain tumor. Later the story changes narrative, Winnie started to tell stories before she was in America. She was abused by her husband,Wen Fu which was an arrange marriage. But fortunately, Winnie soon met an Chinese American which changed her life and escaped from the suffer from her husband. She finally reveals that Jimmie Louie isn't her real father and her ex husband was. Finally, Pearl confessed about her disease and they both thankful to share each other ideas. I think was terrified when Winnie reveals her stories to Pearl and eventually there love grew strong in bonds.
