Many people often do not realize that inother daughter relationship is a very complicated one. Although a mother and her daughter do not quarrel with each other but it does not mean that they have a harmonious relationship. Sometimes each of them does not understand why her mother or her daughter is very difficult. Thus, the study of Amy Tan?s The Bonesetter?s Daughter is aimed to analyze the mother?s disharmonious relationship with her daughter. Basically, the disharmonious relationship is caused by the mother?s awful characteristics as a result of the mother?s terrible and upset life or named Stressful Life Events. It is described that the impact of the mother?s Stressful Life Events makes the mother become annoying, full of anger, and apprehensive and these characteristics lead the mother to have a disharmonious relationship with her own daughter. Actually, the mother?s characteristics are caused by her Stressful Life Events, such as, the death of her mother, her first and second husband, the changing of living condition, and the leaving of her friends. Unfortunately, the mother seems to hide most of her Stressful Life Events from her daughter. As a result, the disharmonious relationship goes on and on.
