By visiting China, June May achieved two objectives.
As June May and her father embark on their train journey to China, the physical and symbolic setting of the story is established by the author. When she returns to China with her father, traveling on the train, though she has never been there before, she feels a sense of coming home: Furthermore, she understands the Chinese language but due to English influence, she cannot speak Chinese well.
The setting plays an important role. It is both a blissful time and yet a time of remorse, Jandale has come to China to find her Chinese roots that her mother told her she possessed, and to meet her two twin half-sisters whom her mother had to abandon on her attempt to flee from the Japanese.
She embarks on a fact finding mission to find his true roots. During the first phase of the train, we get to see yellow color. Blood has also been allegorically used to highlight the relationship that the characters had. In her book, the mother tries to convey their rich history and legacy to her daughter, who is almost completely ignorant of their heritage, while the daughter attempts to understand her hopelessly old- fashioned mother, who now seems to harbor a secret wisdom, who, in the end, is right about everything all along.
This symbolizes change that June May had yearned for during the journey. This will also help them understand how different cultures have helped in shaping them.
This is a journey of self-enlightenment that June May uses to help her discover her real roots. The girls look much like her mother, in an instant, and Jing-Mei feels immediately at home with them. Jandale should have been delighted to have the opportunity to visit China and get to know her roots and her family.
Had she been in China for another mission, she probably would have ordered for an American dish. For example, she does not believe that Communist China can have very beautiful hotels.
This is another allegory that can be used to highlight the fact that June May removed her western mast and put on the new face; that is the Chinese identity that is in her blood Chopin For the first time I can ever remember, my father has tears in his eyes, and all he is seeing out the train window is a sectioned field of yellow, green, and brown, a narrow canal flanking the tracks, low rising hills, and three people in blue jackets riding an ox-driven cart on this early October morning.
