I read this book in an afternoon. Book is about a couple, one who is Caucasian, the other Chinese heritage. They marry in the late 50's when this was still uncommon. Story consists of their experiences and their children's experiences. It is so much bigger than that, though, as it also delves into parenting and that fine line between wanting more for our children and allowing them to live their own lives.

A heart wrenching story of a blended family that is told so beautifully. The story of Lydia's death and how it came to be through the eyes of her family members. Why parents pressure their children, why siblings lean on each other, why differences make us who we are.
