Absolutely stunning and flawless.
Promoted to one of my all-time favorite books.

I've no clue how the author wrote this, being that he is not a geisha, not Japanese, not a woman, not from the World War II era, etc., etc.... but it is absolutely incredible.

Jaline - (on partial hiatus) I agree with your rating and your comments on this fascinating novel 100%, Chloe!


message 2: by RJ (new) - rated it 4 stars

RJ I agree Chloe. I enjoyed this book much more than I expected to, and that had a lot to do, I assume, with the author's research. The story and characters and setting felt very authentic.
