    Hardcover ´ Diamond Head Kindle Ø diamond mobile, head book, Diamond Head EpubThis book is like a memoir of three different women There's the eldest who is rescued from an abusive father and marries a wealthy man who takes her from China to Hawaii There's the middle the poor girl who marries into the wealthy family rising from a room in a basement that she shares with ten other children And there's the youngest pregnant and unmarried in the sixties who didn't interest me at all because the book took too long to get to her storyAll the stories I did read could have been fascinating but the narrative style rather ruined it all for me The fascinating parts were told uickly such as Hong's tale and the elder's tale of rescue Hong was the most interesting to me but she was only briefly there Her bit was so intriguing it could be a novel itself I was disappointed her tale was told and th

    Hardcover ´ Diamond Head Kindle Ø diamond mobile, head book, Diamond Head EpubGreat read was easy enough to get through pretty uickly but also appreciated the space the author used to be descriptive and tell a detailed story I loved that I also learned a lot about Chinese Hawaiian history and culture Appreciated all of the twists and turns but also how everything connected and was brought together at the very end of the book Made me reflect on my own views of family marriage and the power of choice and its conseuences Highly recommend this book
