Book Marks: Coffee & Camaraderie
Coming to America…
The Buddha in the Attic, by Julie Otsuka. Stories of Japanese women who came to America in the early 1900s to marry men they had never met. The novel tells the story of a group of young women brought over from Japan to San Francisco as "picture brides" and traces their extraordinary lives, from their arduous journeys by boat to their arrival in San Francisco; from their experiences raising children who would later reject their culture and language to the arrival of war. A novel about identity and loyalty, and what it means to be an American in uncertain times.
