Falling Leaves by Adeline Yen Mah
“Falling Leaves” is a memoir by Adeline Yen Mah that recounts her challenging and emotional life story. Born in China during the 1940s, Adeline Yen Mah faced immense hardships and neglect from her family after her mother’s sudden death. She was seen as a bearer of bad luck, leading to mistreatment and exclusion within her own family.
Adeline perseveres through her difficult childhood and strives to achieve academic success, which ultimately takes her to the United States for further studies. The book details her journey of overcoming emotional abuse, societal prejudice, and cultural barriers.
