Falling Blossom Summary

Falling Blossom by Peter & Willi Pagnamenta

Simon Winchester, author of "A Crack in the Edge of the World" and "The Professor and the Madman": "The essence of this inexpressibly beautiful story will remain with me, I believe, for the rest of my life. This exquisitely crafted account of the loves and lives of Arthur and Masa, Violet and Kiyoshi - such very ordinary names, yet names that conceal extraordinary passions and confusions - is a tone poem to duty and honour, courage and enduring passion, set against the fantastically rich recent histories of Japan and Ireland, England and France. It is a long time since I have read so moving and haunting a book"
