it was amazing

This is the second time I've read Snow Falling on Cedars.
It's a beautiful love story laced with a subject I study - racism!
This time it's the Japanese after World War II who live on the islands East of Washington State up-against The Struggle.
You can easily tell why David Guterson has won so many awards with this sensitively told story.
Woven in and out of several main characters is a court room scene of a murder trial and the lives of salmon fisherman of the area. All the descriptive complements for Snow Falling on Cedars are well deserved; compelling, luminous, tender, haunting, rich, magic, serious, powerful, intriguing, vivid, elegant, lush, chilling, riveting and passionate!
