Mostly it was a negative. I wanted more information about mail-order brides from Japan.

The relationship between the sisters and trying to understand the mother's feelings. Cared very little for Killian although he held the key to the mother's secrets

The relationship between the sisters was much like the relationship I have with my sisters. We have a huge distance between us. They were resentful of my having opportunities they never had. But with age the resentment is lessening and I find myself now enjoying talking with them.

"Losing" their mother to Alzheimer's disease reminded me how devastating my mother-in-law's disease affected our family.

I was confused with the switch between past and present at the beginning. After awhile, however, I began to look forward to Tomoe's story and the history that I was learning. At the end, I think this vehicle was very effective in presenting the historical information. I probably would not have picked up a book about feudal Japan, but I learned a lot by reading this book, and I concluded that there is much that can be learned from history which impacts our current lives.

I enjoyed Tomoe's story. Far more interesting.

For me definitely the relationship between the girls and their parents. My sisters and I are close but we each have a very different relationship with our parents

Like the novel, my sister and I have not been close,ever, but when our mother was in the nursing home with Alzheimer's, we began to act as a team regarding her needs. I admired the way Drew and Rachel came together to find out more about their mother's history.
