Thank you for popping by today the 6 April 2021. To see which book I have pulled out of the Jar of Books. I always look forward to this regular feature to see what book comes out of my huge TBR list.
This Months Book Is:
A Dictionary of Mutual Understanding by Jackie Copleton
Date Added to Goodreads: 8 January 2017
Book Shelf & Position: to-read (#1)
Amaterasu Takahashi has spent her life grieving for her daughter Yuko and grandson Hideo, who were victims of the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki in 1945.
Now a widow living in America, she believes that one man was responsible for her loss; a local doctor who caused an irreparable rift between mother and daughter.
When a man claiming to be Hideo arrives on her doorstep, she is forced to revisit the past; the hurt and humiliation of her early life, the intoxication of a first romance and the realisation that if she had loved her daughter in a different way, she might still be alive today.
