“The Japanese Lover” by Isabel Allende

screen-shot-2016-09-14-at-4-15-46-pmLove, loss and hardship affect everyone differently.  In September, the Broad Street Readers discuss the effect they have on the characters in Isabel Allende’s “The Japanese Lover.”

“Sweeping through time and spanning generations and continents, The Japanese Lover is written with the same keen understanding of her characters that Isabel Allende has been known for since her landmark first novel The House of the Spirits. The Japanese Lover is a moving tribute to the constancy of the human heart in a world of unceasing change.”                       – Simon & Schuster

 

“Themes of lasting passion, friendship, reflections in old age, and how people react to challenging circumstances all feature in Allende’s newest saga, which moves from modern San Francisco back to the traumatic WWII years. As always, her lively storytelling pulls readers into her characters’ lives immediately… the story has many heart felt moments, and readers will be lining up for it.”
