About this book
The paperback edition of the novel shortlisted for the Orange Prize 2009. Sweeping in scope and evocative of time and place, this crosses generations, cultures and continents, in a style similar to Khaled Hosseini's "The Kite Runner". In 1945, Hiroko loses everything in the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. Years later, she's travelled to Delhi, Pakistan and Afghanistan in the immediate wake of 9/11.
Shortlisted for the Orange Prize 2009, this title presents an epic crossing generations, cultures and continents.
