Gauzy and aimless, a young woman's ill-fated love told in fragments that reassemble into what I don't know. The story is shaped by unexpected pairings: the romantic love of two awkward cousins, the back story of Japanese gardens and slave escapes, the untold truths of war wounded and unwed mothers. Here it all seems a mash. And yet the prose is mesmerizing.
