Natalie Tan's Book of Luck & Fortune

This is a story of mothers and daughters - what brings us together and what tears us apart. A story of one woman discovering her strengths through the examples of her mother and grandmother. Great characters in a story filled with food, community, love, luck and a dose of magical realism.
