For decades—in China and in San Francisco—Winnie Louie and Helen Kwong have kept each other's confidences, but those secrets are about to be revealed. Convinced that she is dying, Helen decides to celebrate the Chinese New Year by unburdening herself of hidden truths—not only hers, but those of Winnie and of Winnie's daughter, Pearl. So begins a series of comic misunderstandings and heartbreaking realizations about luck, loss, and trust—about the things a mother cannot tell her daughter, about the secret that daughters keep, and about the miraculous resiliency of love. Read by Amy Tan, this second novel by the author of The Joy Luck Club was a New York Times bestseller.
