Finding the Balance
Queen Mother of the Western Skies
ALTERNATE MOTHER/DAUGHTER PAIRING
I would choose to read the St. Clair mother/daughter selection because I think it would be interesting to read Ying-Ying's story. She ends up in a terrible marriage, and in order to make it through to he day when her husband dies and she meets a new man, she must be incredibly strong throughout her trials. When that fire inside her burns out, I think it would be interesting to read about what happens, and how it affects those around her. I also would like to see the contrast in relationships between my story, where Lindo and Waverly Jong are both so stubborn and cunning that it affects their relationship, to a story where the mother is only a ghost of her former self, and where they both allow themselves to be pushed around.
