reasons made me homesick It made me feel closer to my mother than ever and I knew thatmade me homesick It made me feel closer to my mother than ever and I knew that the women in the book I would have a special bond with her foreverThe sad thing is after I finished the book my love affair a la John Hinckley Jr with Amy Tan ended and I cannot bear to ick up any of her other booksAnother hilarious thing is I found this on Tan s websitePlease make special note of Huumetsaarin jouluyö personal errata 2 and 9I rest my case We were meant to be with.
