Az utolsó daru

Az este fekete leple egészen ráterült a lápra, de odafönt az égen kigyúltak az éjszaka gyertyácskái, a csillagok és a Sötétség Gondviselője kiakasztotta a nagy Hold-lámpát a láp fölé. A falka öregjei mellre eresztett csőrrel bóbiskoltak; a fiatalok párokra szakadoztak és esti sétára egymás után tünedeztek el a susogó sás között. Egy holdfényes…

In this evocative and thrilling epic novel, fifteen-year-old Yoshi Kobayashi, child of Japan’s New Empire, daughter of an ardent expansionist and a mother with a haunting past, is on her way home on a March night when American bombers shower her city with napalm—an attack that leaves one hundred thousand dead within hours and half the city in ashen ruins. In the days that follow, Yoshi’s old life will blur beyond recognition, leading her to a new world marked by destruction and shaped by those considered the enemy: Cam, a downed bomber pilot taken prisoner by the Imperial Japanese Army; Anton, a gifted architect who helped modernize Tokyo’s prewar skyline but is now charged with destroying it; and Billy, an Occupation soldier who arrives in the blackened city with a dark secret of his own. Directly or indirectly, each will shape Yoshi’s journey as she seeks safety, love, and redemption.
