Fern Bernstein, Mah Jongg Mondays
Fern, married and the mother of three boys, takes us into her modern middle-class suburban Long Island world where one day she gets the “Big Idea” to learn the Chinese tile game called mah jongg. Weekly games provide the setting for deep-seeded friendships to form around the mah jongg table. This is a heartwarming story about the wonderful things that can happen when five women are destined to come together to play an old Chinese game, sitting around a table with 152 tiles, dice, and a mah jongg card. Love always; love all ways, for time has no guarantees.
