The Japanese Lover
A New York Times Bestselling AuthorAn exquisitely crafted love story that sweeps from present-day San Francisco to Poland and the United States during the Second World War, Isabel Allende's multigenerational epic explores questions of identity, abandonment, redemption, and the unknowable impact of fate on our lives.
'Lush storytelling, with a liberal dusting of South American magical realism and a multigenerational narrative sweep ... The Japanese Lover has all the ingredients of classic Allende: love, secrecy, fate; stories within stories; the arc of history; and a certain robustness and ability for reinvention on the part of her characters' Financial Times on The Japanese Lover 'A magical and sweeping tale ... remarkable ... heartbreaking' Publishers Weekly on The Japanese Lover
