"Kwan, in particular, is a memorable creation.... She emerges as a character at once innocent and wise, the relative Olivia both suffers and relies upon. Kwan gently forces Olivia to face the worst in herself and, in doing so, to find her strengths. We could all do with such a sister." (The New York Times Book Review)

"Could not listen"
I love Amy Tan's books but the quality of this recording is horrible. I guess it is because it was remastered from an old recording. After listening to many audible books with crisp, wonderful performances, this was like listening to a radio station that wasn't coming in very clearly. I didn't even get through the first chapter. I am very disappointed and would like my money back!
This book and The Bonesetter's Daughter are everything a sublime book ought to be. Thank you Amy Tan.
