Four Chinese women, drawn together by the shadow of their past, meet in San Francisco to play mah jong, invest in stocks, eat dim sum, and to say stories to each other. Nearly 40 years later, one of the women has died, and her daughter arrives to take her place. However, the daughter never expected to learn of her mother's secret lifelong wish - and the tragic way in which it has come true. The revelation creates among the women an urgent need to remember the past. What is lost between generations and among friends - and what is salvaged - resonates throughout this novel of friendship among women and the relations between mothers and daughters.

    " A collection of connected stories, offering perspectives from four Chinese mothers and their Chinese-American daughters. It amazed me to see where these women wound up after leading the sort of lives they had in China and I was glad to see their daughters come to understand them a little more throughout the course of the book, while also learning about themselves in the process. It reminds me that no matter how old we get, there is still much we can learn from the women in our lives. "

    " I enjoyed the book so much I read it again! I enjoyed each story even more the second time. I did skip the story about the brother drowning because it was too sad. But the rest I read again. I just got the movie to watch too! "
