    A truly brilliant work .

    When two totally different cultures combine against a backdrop of war the result can only be heartbreaking. This book part fiction based on real people examines those differences and the unimaginable consequences. I read far into the night as it is shocking breathholding and also beautifully written . It would make atop class major film.

    Japan's missing children.

    Very moving yet informative telling of an unknown to me part of history. Rarely does a book make me cry but read this for yourself to learn why. Beautifully written and a real page turner. Sad yet uplifting and an insight into a culture little known to the western world.

    An amazing story with truth

    The author tells of child growing in 1950’s Japan when American soldiers were still based in the country. A relationship grows between two people with consequences for many years. The story is sensitively written and I found I couldn’t put it down.

    Star crossed romance .

    Japan 1957 an American sailor and a Japanese schoolgirl (they are both 17) fall in love. However, those around them do not feel the joy, only family and societal disapproval. Hankies at the ready.
