Lindo Jong - Lindo is a member of the Joy Luck Club. When Lindo was two years old, she was
promised in marriage to one-year- old Tyan-yu. When her family's home was destroyed by a
flood, Lindo went to live with Tyan-yu's family while her own family went to live with
relatives. Over the course of four years, Lindo slowly lost her sense of self under
Taitai's careful tutelage. She eventually found a way to get out of the marriage without

irrevocably by American culture.
