Rachel Chu: She‘s like trying to play a game of chicken with me. Where she‘s like coming at me and thinking I‘m going to swerve like a chicken.
Peik Lin Goh: But you can‘t swerve.
Rachel Chu: I‘m not gonna swerve. Not for her.
Peik Lin Goh: No. Chickens are bitches, dude!
Rachel Chu: And I‘m not a chicken.
Peik Lin Goh: You‘re not a chicken. You‘re gonna roll up to that wedding; you‘re gonna be like, “Bak-bak, bitch!”
I guess you could say there is conflict for Francesca & her #inlaws 😉Left widowed & pregnant when her husband is killed in Vietnam, she goes to meet them. Look at the covers & you‘ll agree-No, she did NOT like his mother! Anyway, I had to pick this 1969 book. I stole my older sister‘s copy when I was maybe 9 or 10 sometime after I saw the movie that came out in 1972. (I could never quite think of John-Boy Walton the same.)😱🤣
This book gets some good reviews on Litsy. May have to stack it. Personally I dearly loved my MIL and miss her so much. She lived to 92 years of age ❤️

Reflecting in pitiless detail the poverty trap into which so many people fell, but is at the same time readable and relatable, you really feel for these people. It‘s also a salutary corrective for twenty first century readers. Millions of migrants are still struggling, in ways unimaginable to most of us, to improve their lot while being both exploited and vilified for wanting a bit of what we too often take for granted.
