This book is so well written. The story content itself is very worthy, but the author's descriptions are very vivid and his insight into the human condition is excellent. An especially good read for the history buff.

This is a watered down version of "To Kill a Mocking Bird." I liked the idea of a man defending the husbann of a woman he still loves. Unfortunately the characters are not flashed out. They remain two dimensional through out the story. Guterson also falls into the sterotype of the soft spoken Japanese woman. The husband too also falls into the sterotype. Also he decribes the landscapes for pages on end. If Guterson put halp as much effort into his characters as he did the landscape this might have been a good story.
