Great book!
This is a story of a Chinese American daugther who struggles to come to terms with her mother's onset of Alzheimer's disease. In the mother's house, the daugther finds papers writtin in Chinese. After having them interpreted, the daugther learns it is the story of her mother's life before coming to America. The story helps the daughter understand why her mother has the quirks and beliefs that she does. Suddenly all the "odd" things her mother had done in the past makes sense. This knowledge helps her to better understand and take care of her mother. Very heartwarming.
