Happy Family by Wendy Lee is a story about an American couple that adopts a baby from China - but the REAL story revolves around a Chinese Immigrant, Hua Wu, that becomes the nanny for this adopted child, Lily. I felt for Hua Wu - her life here in the U.S. is a struggle, but what was so hard was all of the not-so-smart choices she made. It was hard to read about her making poor choices. The book was also a downer in that the adoptive parents' marriage is barely staying together - and that was hard to read as well. Then there is Lily - the little girl caught in the middle of a marriage that is nearly done and a nanny that can not seem to make a "go of it" in the U.S. Very sad book - hard to read. There are some great points and good things to learn from Hua Wu's life, but I just felt it was a tough book to read. I was hoping it would be more about adoption as well and there was not much about that. I found this REVIEW and agree with it as well.
