Eleanor Murphy Book Club: The Kitchen God's Wife

Pressured to reveal to the young woman her secret past in war-torn China in the 1940s, Winnie weaves an unbelievable account of a childhood of loneliness and abandonment and a young adulthood marred by a nightmarish arranged marriage. Winnie survives because of the friendship and strength of her female friends, the love of her second husband, and her own steadfast courage and endurance.
