Book # 43 - How to be an American Housewife

How to be an American Housewife
Margaret Dilloway
276 pages

A Japanese mother and an American daughter come together to resolve the past.  Shoko seeks the help of her daughter to help her reconcile with her brother Taro who was still in Japan.  She was too ill to travel to Japan, so she asks her daughter Sue to intercede for her.  Sue brings her own daughter Helena, and together, they begin their journey into Shoko's past.

Masterful weaving in and out of the present.  Graceful transition to memories and back to the present.
