This is a hard to put down novel and my first by this author. One that I really enjoyed.
This new to me author has done a fabulous job with the time slip novel allowing me to travel back in time to WW2 Japan.
This story has it all, faith, love, hope and survival of the fittest.
There are secrets that threaten the peace and security that adds more excitement to the story.
Sometimes we must battle to keep the things we hold dear to us.
I loved these two women that time has separated but yet their courage, and the things they must sacrifice encourage us women to keep on going even today. I think that this book offers courage. Courage for what must be done I feel that everyone should read this book. This book is an excellent lesson for all of us.
My thanks to Just Reads tours for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
