"Such a beautiful, intense, and lively novel about Japan that has not been seen since Memoirs of a Geisha." —THE BOOKSELLER
The #1 International Bestseller & BBC Radio2 Book Club pick available in 22 languages.
Inspired by true stories, The Woman in the White Kimono is Romeo and Juliet meets Madam Butterfly as two elegant narratives intertwine: a twenty-first century investigative reporter embarks on the most personal story of her life—locating the truth about a woman with whom her father had a forbidden relationship more than a half century ago. As her father’s secret past unfolds, the truth will reveal as much about him as about the woman and baby he left behind.
It would take a trip around the world to unravel her father’s past.
And an act of faith to face it.
