"Falling Leaves" by Adeline Yeh Mah

Reviewed by: Enzo Flojo

Book Watch, Vol. 1, Issue 2

Summary: The main character (this was sort of an autobiography) was shunned by her family because of her birth circumstances. She had a terrible time with her father, but, in his old age, the father turned to her for aid. In the end, all the events come full circle for the main character.

Comments: It is quite inevitable for the reader to empathize with the main character. Her struggles and small triumphs are easily absorbed by anyone who reads her life’s journey. It fits Pinoys to a "T" because it revolves around the issue of family, which is a staple in Filipino culture.
