This book is by the author of "The Elegance of the Hedgehog" which I have on my should read list.
This book is one of several books I purchased last week from one of my favorite indie bookstores, Politics & Prose in Washington DC. I got this book for the around the world, 6 continents, 6 counties /continent book challenge. This book is set in Japan.
It is currnetly cherry blossom season (early) here in Washington DC. The cover art attracted my attention. The simple art, the pink and hotpink cover showing a spare black branch with several tiny white cherry blossoms attracted my attention.

A story about a woman who is called to Japan for the reading of a will of a father she never knew. Beautiful descriptions of traditional Japanese architecture, Zen gardens, Buddist temples, food, drink and culture.

Thanks Zippy! I am excited to add this to the shelf and have a less grim book for Japan (the one I was considering is about a very violent murder of a child). Besides, I can count it for my Author With Same Name as a Grandparent goal because my dad's mother was Muriel.
