How do I write a review for a book that is so descriptive and beautiful that it seems to have been an opera whispered This story is so meticulous researched that you forget that this a novel a story of a family and love so masterfully woven you forget the crime A stunning debut of the many shades of love how the best of lies are told nearest to truth. This is a beautifully written but rather slight novel about the consequences of passion and long held family secrets What lifts it above many books in the same space is the elegant precision of the writing, and the insight into modern Japanese culture The structure of a daughter reconstructing her mother s life is very familiar, but the relationship at the heart of the book is rendered with a visceral sense of bodies Nicely done but not a book to linger in my mind once read.TheARC from NetGalley Review TK A beautiful, beautiful book that defies genre and my words There is a crime There is betrayal There is love There is history This is truly an epic, meticulously and lovingly researched, with such exquisite description and detail that I read the same lines over, many times There are thought provoking observations, unforgettable characters, and heart breaking decisions that set in motion catastrophic events I will not forget this book for a long time. I was very frustrated with this story in that it seemed like it was all over the place I kept rereading sections because I thought I missed something but it was very hard to follow.Thank you NetGalley for a copy of the book.
