Joy Luck Club – Chapter 10 Summary

This chapter slightly differed from the last because it starts out with a memory from more recent times after she has grown up. In this story, we can see how the mother and daughter doesn’t understand each other and because of some misunderstandings they do not get along. Waverly thinks that her mother doesn’t approve of her fiance and is constantly trying to find ways to make him look bad but she isn’t and Waverly is just misunderstanding her. Rich, her fiance, makes some mistakes that are considered not very polite in Chinese culture and so Waverly immediately thinks her mother thinks the worst of Rich but her mother isn’t. In the end, she finally talks to her mother and they come to an understanding.
