This story is about Chinese family that were
poorly sad. Jing-Mei Woo, this story's protagonist, had twin half sisters. So
although they are sisters, she knew them a little because they had different
father. In the first of the story, she didn't understand that she is real Chinese.
Because her nationality is China, but she lived in Unites States(California)
with Caucasian friends. So she behaved the way that American usuallydid. But her mother said that once you are born Chinese, you cannot help but
feel and think Chinese. After her mother’s death she went to Guangzhou with her
father, Canning Woo to meet his aunt. Then she would meet her twin half sisters
that she never met. On the way to Guangzhou, she imagined sisters and worried
the fact mother is dead 3 month ago for disease. She thought saying ‘mom is
dead’ is cruel. So she asked Auntie Lindo write letter. Jing-Mei Woo received
letters that how sisters are from them. She gave them to Joy Luck Club’s
ladies. Instead of her dead mother, they wrote letters that her mother’s going
to meet them(a white lie). In Guangzhou, Jing-Mei met great-aunt(Canning Woo’s
aunt). Canning Woo told Jing-Mei Woo that her sister’s names are Chwun Yu, “Spring
rain” and Chwun Hwa, “Spring Flower” and Her mother’s name, Suyuan meaning ‘Long-Cherished
Wish’ After this, he told her old story that why she left her daughters. In
war, she did her best for saving her daughters. But it’s not so easy. So she made
a significant decision. She gave her daughters expensive things that she had.
It’s because she believed they saved her daughter’s life. As a result, they
save them. After she listened mother’s story, she met twin sisters. In that
time, she could see the mother from the twin sisters.
