    Poignant, beautiful, and incredibly heartwrenching

    The Woman in the White Kimono is predominantly set in Japan during the late 1950s, as well as present day, and is told from two different perspectives; Tori, a young journalist who journeys to Japan after her father's death to unravel the secrets of his past and to find the family he may have left behind, and Naoko, a young Japanese girl whose forbidden love for an American soldier will change her life forever. The prose is vivid and expressive. The characters are multi-layered, vulnerable, and resilient. And the plot is a profoundly moving tale about life, love, familial relationships, heartbreak, loss, guilt, grief, desperation, courage, hope, and regret. Overall, The Woman in the White Kimono is the perfect blend of historical facts, evocative fiction, and palpable emotion. It's a bittersweet, tender, affecting tale that will not only make you smile, make you cry, but resonate with you long after the final page has been read.

    Beautiful and tragic

    This book captivated me from the first page. I read it in a weekend, devouring every word, hanging on every chapter. I will think of this book and its people for the rest of my life.
