"A master storyteller.... Michener, by any standards, is a phenomenon." The Wall Street Journal

Publisher's Summary

From a great master of historical fiction comes a brilliant tale of love amid war. James A. Michener combines powerful storytelling with deep sensitivity in this novel of a US army man who, against all odds, falls for a fascinating Japanese woman. Stationed in the exotic Far East, Major Lloyd Gruver considers himself lucky. The son of a general, dating the daughter of another powerful military family, he can look forward to a bright future. And he just can't understand guys like Private Joe Kelly, who throw away their lives in the States by marrying local girls. But then Lloyd meets Hana-ogi. After that, nothing matters anymore...nothing but her.

Narrated?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It is a shame that such a good story was narrated so badly. It sounded as if the narration was just read by someone who stumbled and bumbled his way to the end.
