Set in contemporary San Francisco and in a Chinese village where Peking Man is being unearthed, The Bonesetter's Daughter is an excavation of the human spirit: the past, its deepest wounds, its most profound hopes.

The story conjures the pain of broken dreams, the power of myths, and the strength of love that enables us to recover in memory what we have lost in grief. Over the course of one fog-shrouded year, between one season of falling stars and the next, mother and daughter find what they share in their bones through heredity, history, and inexpressible qualities of love.

Listener Opinions

    " It's a typical Amy Tan novel, with the central theme being mothers and daughters and their difficulties communicating with each other. That being said, I really like Tan's writing. "

    " I love Amy Tan. This is an easy read with great descriptions of asian culture. "

    " I KNOW I read this years ago but couldn't remember a thing!. Just reread for book club. We had a great discussion about this poignant mother/daughter relationship story that also deals with issues of the Chinese culture and conflicting 2nd generation American values. "

    " Typical story by this author but her words never fail to entangle me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lee | 6/11/2011

    " The short story, which was published in "The New Yorker" magazine, was poignant and powerful. The novel, however, "milks it." Try to find the short story instead. It, unlike the novel, is well worth the time spent. "

    " Liked it not so much. Rip the book in half. Read the part set in old China around the world wars. That part is good, the other part set in San Francisco just word fodder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 6/10/2011

    " Took me a while to get into it, but I'm glad I stuck with it. I really enjoyed LuLing's story and the ending of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Soleil | 6/10/2011

    " I love Amy Tan, even if her books are all set in California with the very similar Chinese families. Her books are so descriptive and detailed and make you feel like you know the characters personally. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves history and culture. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 6/5/2011

    " Another great book by Amy Tan! I was particularly attracted to this one because of mention of the Peking Man and my own background as an Anthropologist/Archaeologist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 6/3/2011

    " Great book especially after reading her bio. Interjects a lot of Chinese folklore and culture "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethgentner | 5/23/2011

    " I like Amy Tan and have read much of what she has written. The mother-daughter tension is thought-provoking; the violence has an impact on the reader. I enjoy reading about another culture. "
