Snow Falling on Cedars
2 journalers for this copy...
From the publisher:
"On San Piedro, an island of rugged, spectacular beauty in Puget Sound, a Japanese-American fisherman stands trial for murder. Set in 1954 in the shadow of World War II, Snow Falling on Cedars is a beautifully crafted courtroom drama, love story, and war novel, illuminating the psychology of a community, the ambiguities of justice, the racism that persists even between neighbors, and the necessity of individual moral action despite the indifference of nature and circumstance."

This was an absolutely wonderful story and I am sorry that I didn't read it sooner. The characters and setting are all beautifully written and I especially love his attention to island life as well. While I found the entire book quite engaging, the second half was absolutely riveting...right up to the last page.
I am passing this book along before it gets wild released on my favorite island. It will probably make a stop in Ohio and Maryland before then.
Many, many thanks for sharing this book with me, fanclub.
