Great book which talks about family and country. With no knowledge about Japan Korea War this was a good place to start

I ❤️'d this book the first few times I read it, and I still do reading it again after so many years. It's a beautiful work of fiction based on so many true events that occurred during WW2 some of which hit very close to home both literally and figuratively.

I keep trying to start this book, but I can't seem to stay away from this veryclose election. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one watching and not reading! And thank you to my Litsy family for being a safe space tonight!
