Two stories intertwine in this spine-tingling novel by Sarah
Bird. At the close of World War II a young Okinawan woman leaps to her death
rather than face capture by the American forces closing in. In contemporary
times, a U.S. army brat deals with the bitterness and anger after her sister's
suicide. This is a deeply satisfying novel.
