This is one of those novels that lingers with you long after you’ve put it down. It is thought-provoking, touches your heart, and amazes you with it’s masterful, creative writing. This five-star book is the best I’ve read this year, and has earned a place on my list of all-time favorites. Here’s the jacket description of A Tale for the Time Being:
On a remote island in the Pacific Northwest, a Hello Kitty lunchbox washes up on the beach. Tucked inside is the diary of a sixteen-year-old Japanese girl named Nao Yasutani. Ruth – a writer who finds the lunchbox – suspects that it is debris from Japan’s 2011 tsunami. Once she begins to read the diary, Ruth quickly finds herself drawn into the mystery of Nao’s fate…
Definitely read this book! You will be quickly drawn into the mystery as well!
