Memoirs of a Geisha was a brilliant book about a young woman going through social difficulties in Kyoto, Japan during the World Wars. The woman is notably beautiful and has to face many trials throughout her life as a geisha. I absolutely loved this book and found it thought provoking as well as a relaxing read.
