Re: The Translator
I think my answer would simply be that I would like to try an
unconventional romance. Was searching my memory for anything
like the summary of this book and don't think I have come

Your question sort of came out of left field, and the only book
that sort of foots the bill, but doesn't come quite close would
be Roses by Leila Meacham. For over 30 years, I have not only
collected, but have tried to read any book having to do with
Japanese and Chinese culture. No offense to you, but Amy Tan
is one of my favorites, since she got me started with The Joy
Luck Club and the Kitchen Witch. I also read books by Lisa
See. There are other Authors, and I would love to add your
books to the mix, since this book sounds quite spectacular!!
The story line has me totally hooked, and I already put it on
my TBR list. It's going to make great reading for the Fall,
and I can't wait to see how the story line plays out. Thank
you for coming here to tell us about your book, and I'm sure
it's going to do well!! I adore the cover as well!!
