The book opens with octogenarian, Florence on the floor of her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. Florence’s first person POV storytelling switches between the present and the events of the past month. The book is also borne through a couple of other narrators. The two other narrators — Miss Ambrose, the nursing home’s manager, and “Handy Simon,” the home’s handyman are in third person POV.
On the surface, the Huangs are like any other wealthy Chinese-American family. However, a few chapters into Kathy Wang’s FAMILY TRUST, the reader can tell that this isn’t the case.
