Mamadou Sissoko 3/25/20 Chapter 20: At the beginning of chapter 20 Winnie is trying to get out of her marriage with Wen Fu. But first, she wanted to visit her Aunts with Danru. When Winnie met her Aunts she was emotionally moved by how much she loved them. The meeting was also more successful than she thought it would be. Everyone in her family has really been emotionally affected by the war. People like her father and her uncle are “walking in his dream” her younger cousins have quit school to work. When Winnie asks about Peanut her uncle refers to peanut as being “dead” but not actually dead, her family is disappointed in her leaving marriage. Peanut was in the newspaper for “deserting” her husband for communists and everyone in her family knows about it. Winnie stays with her Aunts for a couple of weeks and was dying to know where Peanut is staying. Winnie’s aunts unwillingly give her the address and Winnie runs into Jimmy Louie and they talk. Jimmy Louie is asked to pick between this lady’s daughters but he chooses Winnie.
