, however, I did not find Hua, the main character, relatable or believable at all The only reason why I finished it was because I was stuck on a plane with nothing else to read.

Good premise but then went nowhere.
I hesitate to give 5 stars since I m sure this isn t the best book ever classic, but what the heck, I liked it and thought it was well written I thought there were interesting structures and contrasts the novel was like a puzzle that made me think about how all the ideas fit together BTW, this book is also being discussed at I think Happy Family was about the characters and in particular, the development of Hua, the main character than about adoption per se, I do also think the author was commenting on international adoption esp with the kidnapping incident While Jane clearly wanted a child, she also seemed to have a China fetish that Lily was helping to fulfill The author writes on P 56, In some ways it was that simple Lily needed parents and Jane and her husband needed a child But foreigners were forever meddling in business that wasn t theirs, taking things that did
