Interesting cross-cultural family narrative
Reviewed in the United States on November 4, 2017
Four sisters sharing a childhood-same parents, same extended family, same history of needing to flee their politically oppressive homeland for the safety and uncertainty of the United States. Yet each sister is her own person with her own unique story to tell. I really enjoyed getting to know each of the sisters, their fears and talents, their unique perspectives, and the dynamics of their relationships as sisters. The subjectivity of privilege is revealed through the family’s experience in two different cultures and issues of class, gender, and race are woven throughout the narrative.
