This is one of the most haunting, touching books I have ever read. Gail Tsukiyama doesn't disappoint.

This book was a very inspirational and motivational one for me. It was incredibly well written for its semi-short length. The message and moral of this touching story is one of tolerance that is shown through Stephen's experiences during the time that the book is written. He grows in strength and mentality and shows that whenever needed, you should help out those who need it, no matter what their differences might be. This is a great book for anyone who is interested in Asian literature. I think everyone should try and read atleast a few chapters of this story, it is amazing.

Several years ago I read this and promptly fogot the title and author's name. But the story is so powerful it stayed with me and drove me to try and find it again today. 'novel japan leprosy' and google turned it up straight away!

"Review" by , "Tsukiyama is a wise and spellbinding storyteller."
"Synopsis" by ,
The daughter of a Chinese mother and a Japanese father, Tsukiyama uses the Japanese invasion of China during the late 1930s as a somber backdrop for her unusual story about a 20-year-old Chinese painter named Stephen who is sent to his family's summer home in a Japanese coastal village to recover from a bout with tuberculosis. Here he is cared for by Matsu, a reticent housekeeper and a master gardener. Over the course of a remarkable year, Stephen learns Matsu's secret and gains not only physical strength, but also profound spiritual insight. Matsu is a samurai of the soul, a man devoted to doing good and finding beauty in a cruel and arbitrary world, and Stephen is a noble student, learning to appreciate Matsu's generous and nurturing way of life and to love Matsu's soulmate, gentle Sachi, a woman afflicted with leprosy.
