In 1949, four Chinese women drawn together by the shadow of their past begin meeting in San Francisco to play Mah Jong, invest in stocks, eat dim sum, and say stories. Nearly 40 years later, one of the members has died, and her daughter has come to take her place, only to learn of her mother's lifelong wish and the tragic way in which it has come true. The revelation of this secret unleashes an urgent need among the women to reach back and remember.

In this extraordinary first work of fiction, Amy Tan writes about what is lost over the years - between generations, among friends - and what is saved. Download and start listening now!

    " EPIC! The different lives of Chinese women, colourful, riveting and ever so mysterious. What is so exciting about this book is the comparison between mother and daughter. They are not only separated by a generation but a country as well. One grew up in the traditional and war-stricken world of China and the other knew nothing but comfort with a bit of criticism in the streets of San Francisco. I cannot help but think of my own mother. How she is to me and how she constantly reminds me that her generation was way better than mine. And how a mother's judgement is both a daughter's enemy and best friend. The culture is another highlight of these stories. The best way to learn about a country is from its people. The Joy Luck Club, where mah-jong tiles are 'washed', good food is served and where each and every member tries their hardest to hold on. "
