This section of the book is basically narrated by the mothers. Except for Jing-Mei Woo, who narrates instead of her mother. However, she recalls her mother saying a story, so it ends up being the mother telling the story anyway. The stories are all set in China, and written about things that happened when these characters were children. (Except for Jing-Mei Woo’s version, which is written at her current age.)
I enjoyed the story of the marriage and Huang Tai Tai. I don’t know but I like these types of more dramatic or, exciting story where something unhappy happens… -_- However, I also found it interesting how each chapter or story ends with sentences which mean something, and can change the whole thought about the story. It’s like you have to read to the end to understand it all.
