Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary

The Bonesetters Daughter dramatically chronicles the tortured, devoted relationship between LuLing Young and her daughter Ruth. . . . A strong novel, filled with idiosyncratic, sympathetic characters, haunting images, historical complexity, significant contemporary themes, and suspenseful mystery. Los Angeles Times TAN AT HER BEST . . . Rich and hauntingly forlorn . . . The writing is so exacting and unique in its detail. San Francisco Chronicle For Tan, the true keeper of memory is language, and so the novel is layered with stories that have been written downby mothers for their daughters, passing along secrets that cannot be said out loud but must not be forgotten. The New York Times Book Review AMY TAN [HAS] DONE IT AGAIN. . . . The Bonesetters Daughter tells a compelling tale of family relationships; it layers and stirs themes of secrets, ambiguous meanings, cultural complexity and self-identity; and it resonates with metaphor and symbol.
