Purchased from the Germantown Library used book sale in February 2024. I picked this up because I didn't think I had read any of Pearl Buck's books before. I enjoyed this story - it read like a fable.

This copy has "Douglas" written on the inside front cover. This is a Scholastic school market (book fair) edition.

A friend brought me this book to read for the 666 Challenge. I had enough time today to read it. The story of the tsunami and the importance of living despite the reality of death were interesting and thought-provoking.
