Gail Tsukiyama is one of my favorite authors! Born to a Chinese mother and a Japanese father in San Francisco, Gail understands both cultures. In The Samurai's Garden, she portrays a Chinese student who develops Tuberculosis and spends a year in Tarumi, Japan, in his grandfather's summer house in order to recuperate. The war between Japan and China begins. Not only does Stephen recuperate in Tarumi, but he learns the meaning of life, death, peace, friendship, and love. I cried many times throughout the story. The characters are unforgettable. This is a must read!
