Linda C (libladynylindac) | 1053 comments Stephen, a young Chinese man with TB is sent to his grandfather's beach home in Japan from Hong Kong for his health. The year is 1937 and Japan is invading China. The beach home is cared for by Matsu. He is a master gardener and has created a serene garden where Stephen finds peace and can paint. Over the next year he comes to understand Matsu, meet a young Japanese girl named Keiko and friends of Matsu, Sachi and Kenzo. The history of Sachi, Kenzo and Matsu unfolds over time. This was deeply moving and beautifully crafted.
